livelovelaugh You stopped. He knew it and I'm sure appreciated it. Great! :)

stormfish i'm glad you appreciated... :-)

paul watzlawik once said: "one cannot NOT communicate." maybe this guy was not playing for any other audience than himself. and even further maybe, he HAD to stand there and play because this was one wish on his bucket list? and you just happened to pass by and being drawn into his dream of the world by his music?

life is crazy - it's good if you're a little crazy, too. ;-)

etodd80 Sad that nobody else was listening. I wish you could have posted some audio with your photos :-) He looks quite focused in #1 and has sad eyes in #2, you brought out great emotion.

Amethystia Your wonderful post reminds me of this true story: http://www.snopes.com/music/artists/bell.asp

redro It's not that "nobody was listening"....but the fact that "just a few STOPPED to listen" ... We don't have any excuse for loosing the ability to respond to beautiful things, I think it's our personal responsibility to discover and nurture it to give value to life...What else could be out there ? Our only meaning here in this world is to see and wonder.... and applaud.
That was his stage, I like how nicely he dressed for the occasion of his concerto ...He wanted to be "seen" as much as being "heard"....
A very touching picture and story.
Did you talk to him ?

????? Performing in public is one thing...but the tie!!
Now that takes guts :-))

????? I love seeing musicians playing in public. These are so nice.

kopaczandras Szerintem azért, mert ez mindennapos dolog, annak ellenére, hogy nagyon szépen játszhatott az úr...

????? You stopped... and not only did you stop, you captured the moment and shared it. I'm sure he was overjoyed that a beautiful young lady took the time to listen, watch him play AND take his photograph!

TIM927 hahah im laughing about Ted´s comment lol... and I bet that even thought the tie he was later surrounded by people...as soon as somebody "takes the guts" as Ted says to be the first one to stop,,soon there is a crowd around,,adn you ,,you took the guts ;)

eljapa i prefer the first one, he looks like really being into the music. Not sure about that piece of gray sky.. perhaps a tighter crop would help.
