    It was a really nice sunny day here in Toronto, and after an errand downtown, I went for a walk into the chinatown district. I thought what a great place to try some street photography. After 10 shots, I gave up.:lol: It was way too crowded.
    I heard the sound of a flute near by and found this guy playing. The sound of the flute amongst the people was amazing to hear, so I stopped and listened to a few melodies. The more I watched, I seemed to learn about this guy. It was not till the third song I noticed he was blind. I looked at his chapped hands, and his weathered skin. The crowds walked by, some tossing a few coins in his case, othesr justcarrying on as if he never existed.
    I stayed for a couple more songs, gave him a $5.00 bill and went on my way also.

    Chiller.....is that Sean Connery? Sure looks as if it could be.

    That's just an amazing shot. I do like your b/w they always are so dramatic that color would only make them seem sureal.

    What kind of flute is that? It looks self made.:confused:

    Leave it to April to find the "welcome" sign....she's always on top of everything.:sexywink:

    Interesting irony between this photo and your signature. Great shot tho. The B&W does it total justice.

    Nice potrait in B&W. Like the player being framed by the window bars and the flute.
