    I know, street musicians are an easy target :D And we all, I guess, sometimes can not resist a random shot. :gun:
    And then we do not know what to do with these images... So let's dump it here ! I will start with some of mine.
    (When I put these together, it struck me how diverse all these people are, amazing)

    Not exactly an inspiring topic. I can't resist the easy shot either but I usually end up deleting the shots as I rarely find mine that interesting... but I've managed to grab a few ones that I've kept over the years.

    Street musician photography suffers from the same problem as all "Street photography", and that is "just because something is on the street and gets your attention, does not mean it is photo-worthy. You still have to capture something interesting, unique or emotional. (ideally, all three)

    I've shot a couple I'm happy with...

    I worked very hard to get the train in this one and to have it blur just enough to give us that sense of movement, while ensuring the musicians were crisp and clear.

    I pretty much stalked this guy for months to get the right picture of him and his pup.
