Spotted this gentleman sitting outside Mike’s Pastry, the tasty tourist trap in Boston’s North End. His music punctured the popping night crowd, bustling through humid 90+ degree weather even though the sun had long since set.
This musician is blind and therefore unable to shoot pleading and guilt-inducing stares toward passersby. My sense is that that effects business.
Taken with an Olympus EM-5 (at 1/10 second… thank you image stabilization!) and using the dramatic tone art filer – one that provides just the right impact when you’re on the fly, but like a rich cannoli, is best left to a more tempered consumption.
