This gentleman regularly performs on Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis. He plays recorder and trumpet. I regularly stop and contribute to his cause and he lets me take pictures. Next time I see him I should stop to chat and get to know him.

This one brings a strong aesthetic pleasure with itself. What strong composition! I wonder if it will be more effectrive in pure B&W instead of a sepia tone.

Very cool, I like the color choice. I like the black space next to him. It's like he's playing for himself and for no one else.
