In the alley that featured in my workshop photo for the previous posting, I came across this musician who had found a little niche with a colourful graffito and there played on his accordion music from central Europe. I tossed a few coins into his money box that winked at the passersby with its fairy lights before I took the picture. He was a serious man as you can see.

a magic study this. A real character and set amongst this graffiti it just takes on a wonderfully original mood. Excellent clarity, detailing and composition make this both compelling and expressive. Like it a lot!

Hi Klaudio - a nice quick scene you captured here; apart from the lights and graffiti this is an image that could be from any decade in the last century and a half! His classic look and dress are timeless, a nice juxtaposition with the colorful alley he performs in. Thanks!

Hello Klaudio. The beautiful photo speaks for itself I like the great composition and the colored background - Art in a double sense.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.

The sort of scene that begs to be photographed, guess i like the feel of isolation on this and his thoughts seem a million miles away and looks rather fed up with the world. A very deep serious and sensitive street candid conveying a lot of emotion, I wonder if he will be there forever! Excellent that you took care of little details around, the colours are so sharp and the strong contrast is superb, indeed a powerful image which gets us thinking. Wonderful shot, TFS

A fine and vivid lit colors of the graffiti, with the presence of the man playing in front, for his daily living's. Graffiti regards by some as street art, and for other's it mainly looks as rebellion expression by the young generation.
Nice spotted the corner and well collected.
Have a nice weekend,

This artist reminds me of Chaplin wearing the mustache and melon hat, playing musical arabesques inspired by those painted on backdrop by some bohemians under influence..!!
Quite a sympathic scenery indeed.

A serious man indeed! It is interesting the way that he is surrounded by the graffiti and funny little lights on his box. It has made an excellent portrait of this man in his working environment.
Kind Regards, Ann

so well captured! I like it a lot: the colorful and cartoon like background, the musician and its thoughtful expression. Very nicely composed and framed with vibrant colors and perfect sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
