    Gorgeous man and photograph. It looks like a string of pearls around his neck. He is impeccably dressed.

    This is a really nice photo, with tensión, elegance and an extraordinary light in it. Love the musicien´s attire…with the pearls hanging, and the impolluted white of his suit. Urban is here a virtue…. it has lot of soul in it. Rosa

  • Thanks Rosa, yes he is the most well dressed street musician I have found yet, I talked to him and he is a most elegant man.

    Top shot Larry!! Fabulous treatment and handling of the strong tonal contrasts, I’m sure this is one portrait the subject would love to have for himself. Excellent work!
