Went into the city last weekend with Dianne and Carol Brandt and partner Mike.
Sydney NSW Australia
This busker was just setting up in the walkway under the road near Hyde Park. The acoustics are great in these places. The security guard at the entrance was friendly and not fussed about our friend. He scored a few dollars from each of us as you can imagine how we milked the photographic opportunity !!
