This is not the first picture on TE showing a child being fascinated by street musicians, and it won't be the last, I am sure.
This is from Pärnu, a pleasant seaside- and spa town on the Estonian Baltic coast. It is regarded as the "summer capital" of Estonia.

As you say in the photo comment that little girl is fascinated by the street musicians, maybe a future Celine Dion..
Good street report, a type of picture I like showing daily life
Brillant photo with excellent colors

Tu as su saisir l'image juste au bon moment, avec cette petite fille qui replace sa culotte tout en regardant le spectacle de rue. On remarque un qu'un lien s'installe entre la violoniste et la petite.

no way, such a nice moment cannot be the last, it will be photographed for ever :) i like the "oh cutie" smile on the violinist girl and the flying hair of the little girl. the "rocks" on the ground look quite difficult to walk on properly, it seems to be an interesting decision of the municipality to decorate the grounds with so huge pieces. a "high heel killer" surface.

This is a sweet and agreeable photograph, so it's interesting and impressive to see that there are two young musicians who are playing the violin and viola on the street, a little girl wearing cute clothes is listening their music face them, and one of musicians gazes at this little girl and she answers with smile. It seems to be a good smiling scene in daily life. And, it's impressive in wall design with the window.
Good composition and excellent tone/clarity.

Dobar dan, popodne.
Lep pogled na dete i ulicne svirace ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazan trenutak sa detetom koje uziva u muzici.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.

Very nice scene, the musicians seem to be glad to have such a young audience, well done
wolf38 (29666) 2013-06-19 10:07
Hello Gert. This is a wonderful scene full of atmosphere. Everything is in the compositional and emotional balance. The loving gaze of the musician is enchanting. So this is definitely one of your best photos. Compliment.
Romano46 (14452) 2013-06-19 11:19
una situazione molto simpatica, per il bell'incontro tra le due suonatrici di strada e la bambina che le sta ammirando.
Una scena inquadrata molto bene e piacevole anche per la bella espressione colta sul viso della violinista.
Simpatica anche la bimbetta, assai graziosa nel suo vestito variopinto che immette una ulteriore nota di allegria.
Una composizione piacevole che espone molto bene un aspetto di questo paese che si è affacciato di recente all'Europa.
Ciao e buona serata
rbassin (14435) 2013-06-19 13:16
une très belle scène, le spectacle captive la petite fille et ta photo rend bien ce merveilleux moment.
Glint (5965) 2013-06-19 13:40
always a charming combination, children and music. I like too that the musician on the left smiles at the little girl. A well balanced composition.
carlo62 (22265) 2013-06-19 14:51
di sicuro non sarà ne la prima ne l'ultima, ma la bambina è proprio carina e colorata e trovarne un'altra non sarà facile. Inoltre la strada con i grandi sassi ha un suo fascino tutto particolare.
Bella scena, ben fotografata.
worldcitizen (6021) 2013-06-19 17:59
This is such a charming and happy photo. I really like the smile of the violinist as she looks at the little girl. The girl's dress is colorful, and I like her position on the rocks. The old wall, in pastel colors, also makes a wonderful background. Very nice!
fabbs99 (13447) 2013-06-19 22:52
Nice shot of the lady musicians playing violin on the street and the child looking upto them in excitement.Great moment and very well captured.TFS.

Hi Gert, Nice scene. The girls are probably music students. Sometimes this street musicians are really good artist, promoting their music on disks. i like the expression of the red haired girls, she has fun ob serving the little girl. And the girl is so cute, with the red elements of dress and shoes. I imagine my granddaughter would be also interested . lovely photo.

Royaldevon (23372) 2013-06-20 3:02
Now, isn't this a cracker!
There is so much to enjoy, how fortunate you had your camera with you to capture this wonderful moment!
There is such a rapport between the musician and the audience! You can almost see the connection.
Well seen and well captured.
Have a great day,
ourania (21360) 2013-06-20 3:05
a very relaxing and charming scene offered in an excellent composition. I like very much how the perspective and framing of the picture accentuate the contact and interaction between the three girls as they share the sound heard and the feelings evoked by the music. All three of them are absolutely necessary for the image and their attachment, even though temporary, is strong. I also like very much the way you've managed lighting and colours in this shady corner of the picturesque town. Warm and cool tones are lovely and harmonious, they match the atmosphere so well. The presence of warm hues in the backdrop is great. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
serp2000 (35056) 2013-06-20 5:52
Thumbs up! Very attractive street scene, very picturesque composition. I like this kind of the photos, little bit more real life. TFS!
Yes, sometime I have make the photos with some standarts, with a balance of the buildings and peoples ;) Glad to know you can understand me!
macjake (48279) 2013-06-20 6:04
how fantastically charming and sweet is this eh!
the longer I look around, the more and more interesting subjects i can see in the frame.
everything from the stones on the ground to the pretty little dress to the cracked foundations, to the clashing red and pink attire of the player on the right! haha
easy to see why people enjoy this photo
enjoy your day my friend
abmdsudi (35250) 2013-06-20 8:23
You have made a good colourful shot of this young women whose characters shine through displaying their talent with the intensity of concentration and the passion about the music. The admirer is a good addtion. A wonderful and tender candid shot with great sense of humanity and lots of of interest around to look at. Congrats. Have a great day.
williewhistler (10859) 2013-06-20 8:58
the very charming street scene is just delightful,the interaction between the musicians and the solitary little girl has been very well portrayed by you,your patience in waiting for the magic moment has been well rewarded,lovely photography.
Best regards Les.
Waylim (24302) 2013-06-20 10:13
This is a very cute and beautiful photo. I love the connection between the musician and their little audience. The dress of the little girl really gives a sprash of colors with cheerful energy. Great decisive moment shot with good quality.

Hello dear Gert,
Great ! Perfect pov and perfect layout.
The little listener is full in her element. She seemingly enjoys the performance.
TFS and best regards
Urs (14082) 2013-06-21 3:11
Street Musicians are common in Europe but not so in South East Asia. You show us a very lovely scene with the little girl watching at the two musicians and listening to their music. I almost can hear the music myself. Excellent POV with fine pastel colour hues and high sharpness.
Graal (93560) 2013-06-21 3:22
nice scene and reportage from Estonia. Fine eye contact of violinist and girl. Good colors and composition also.
Have a nice day.

Brilliant candid shot. I adore your street photography and glad to see you are still taking image like this.
Beautiful colours and great timing. I like the expression on the face of the musician.
Have a nice weekend
rogerl (1164) 2013-06-22 5:57
Gert, nicely framed capture of this street scene. Not only is the girl pretty interested in the goings-on, it looks like one of the musicians is having a good time with her. Nice balance in the shot, and I like the background pastels as well.
Fis2 (78748) 2013-06-22 7:09

very beautiful scene of these street musicians. Great capture. I like it. Beautiful. Barbara
saxo042 (35146) 2013-06-24 2:19
En verkligt fin bild, alla detaljer har betydelse för helheten. Jag antar att du hade gott om tid för att kunna ta många bilder av detta självskrivna motiv. Sedan var det kanske inte så svårt att välja just denna bild, den har ju allt.
ACL1978 (6811) 2013-06-24 15:59
An adorable street scene you've captured here, Gert. This little girl seems bubbling with excitement as she watches the musicians, and they seem equally taken with her! Your composition strengthens that relationship well. Nicely seen!
nikkitta (10418) 2013-06-24 16:04
Enjoy watching this very lovely scene, the cute girl and the smiling player, daily live, my prefered pictures

Hi,this excellent shot really communicates.Also reminds me of my daughter who always wanted to play flute in the streets of Salzburg after she saw another girl do it when we made a trip there.Charming shot,friendly regards,Wolf.

Splendid scene with three wonderful girls.
Image rich of colors.
Nice sharp and clear image.
Angshu (53659) 2013-07-01 23:39
Indeed even if we cannot see the little one's face, we can sense the curiosity and fscination in her eyes! The lady on the left seems to be striking some eye contact with her...very interesting scene with the 'play' between the 3 characters making it attractive
AdrianWrobel (1686) 2013-07-03 8:19
Heil, Bardzo podobaj± mi siê Twoje zdjêcia - s± takie bliskie mojemu otoczeniu, s± urokliwe. Pozdrawiam - Adrian
adores (32138) 2013-07-03 17:17
Surely a very nice scene! Seems that even her hair is dancing:)! Eyecatching with her colourful clothes and really concentrated on the music. Maybe a small audience, but surely an enthusiastic one. A very good daily scene!
Tigerlily (2417) 2013-07-05 9:51
Simply beautiful, and the atmosphere is very appealing... you captured the heart...
delpeoples (50263) 2013-07-06 4:53
A very sweet and endearing scene. I love the look on the face of the girl playing the violin. The colours are lovely and vibrant and the entire scene makes me smile.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day
daddo (21228) 2013-07-08 16:30
Hi Gert. This is so sweet, particularly when one studies the little one's body language and the woman's encouraging smile. At times like this it feels nice to be part of the human race, a feeling that is often quashed by the often demonstrated sheer stupidity of home sapiens.It is a mystery to me why I can recognize your photos in the gallery immediately due to you colour tones- it all looks as if you are still using Kodak film. Don't get me wrong; I do like this pre digital look. Regards. Klaudio.
sdnpicz (195) 2013-07-20 1:38
Very sweet moment captured.
The smiling player and i can see the girl's smile from side also. creating a good harmony.
Good composition. TFS.
subhendu_bagchi (23549) 2013-11-13 2:55
namaste Gert, really an interesting moment. They are trying to captivating this little audience. The litte one I think convinced with their performance. Great composition. Light is perfect and sharpness is upto the mark. Great shot. Tfs.
icesurfer (512) 2013-12-30 15:49
Really a wonderful scene of daily life, with the young girl that is probably mesmerized by the show right in front of her.
The overall composition is also eye-catching, with the delicate colors of the walls and the stones on the opposite side of the picture.
I also like the contrast betweem the bright smile of one girl and the focused expression of the other. Seeing their faces makes you even more curious about the young girl's expression.
