this beautiful night

I didn't ask the name of the pianist, who was also the composer.

At dusk I walked to the park in Kensington market - a place I go where I feel a part of this city. I'd sat for a time before heading home. On Nassau street I heard music which felt like it was coming from inside me - a piano melody like a rolling wave, tender and endless. The piano was at the edge of the cafe fence, almost on the sidewalk, and there were a few standing to listen. I was going to walk slowly past, but someone asked me to stay, as if knowing I needed to hear the invitation. The music unfolded, unwound, and said everything. I sat until the cafe manager had to close the place. The pianist told him he doesn't have a piano at home, and they agreed he could come back to play again. For the rest of the way home, I felt different, and so many people needed to say something as we passed each other on the street. 'beautiful night, isn't it?' Beautiful night.

I build my house of straw.

????? Awesome, awesome photos with shallow dof and bokeh. You caught some good expression too. I'll have to do a photo walk in the Kensington market some day.

caroleagle Intensely beautiful photographs. And the words (Beautiful too) add so much. I Feel like I've just watched a film. The kind of film that hangs around you for days.

Visitor Sometimes photographs and text present an extraordinary event in a way that makes viewers-readers wish they had witnessed it firsthand. Yours make me feel like I have witnessed an extraordinary event firsthand.
