    well seen street moment.
    it always makes me a bit sad when I see artists and musicians working on streets.

    I can’t help but compare the ‘size’ of the warmly clad lady to the thin stooped frame of the old violin player … I’m with Susie and Rose – hope that lady (and anyone else who passed by) tipped some decent coin/notes into his case! :-/
