Famous photographers often talk about "working the scene" - by this they mean that you do not just take one shot of a scene, subject or event, but that you stick around and explore different angles and compositions. In streetphotography this means often that you take shots of a person until you get noticed.
However, sometimes you get the chance to work a scene with all the time you have, as your subject does not mind you taking photos. Often this is the case with street musicians who are quite happy to receive the images later on.
On a Friday evening I was on a short tour throgh Munich with @munichinstagod when we came around a musician unpacking his guitar.
First I thought that this shot would be it, but as he opened his case I got more interested as he had a steel resonator guitar that glittered even in the shadows. So we waited around until he started playing a mean slide guitar blues.
He was a real character who played - beside cover versions of famous blues tracks - some of his own tunes.
The whole session did just last about half an hour, but it was really thrilling. He even told us ome some anecdotes from his life and his music.
All in all he was a true "Münchner Original".
