Listen to Me

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

Just an ordinary man
In an anonymous street
Tapping my fingers
To a familiar beat

Listen to me
I have something to play
Music is my soul
On this wonderful day.

I'm just a faceless man
In a hurry up street
Just stop a minute
And listen to me

I have something to say
That could make your heart
Happy on this wonderful day!

As I tap out a happy tune
You will be singing soon
And maybe you'll
Stay awhile

I'm just an anonymous face
On a hurry up street
Listen to my music
And dance to my beat.

Listen to me
You'll be glad you came
Music and joy
Are one in the same.

for not being a very busy photo this has a ton of movement, and a good bit of joyful emotion with a soft sad undertone. Well at least to me. I like the box too as it screams street musician just trying to earn a living do what he loves and is good at. I like the White Balance and the open space too, makes it feel like you could be standing right their while the pic was being taken. Instant add to my favorites! I feel you got everything right with this. If darker it would be too sad, if more subject matter, too busy. Great job. This is truly outstanding!

Y'know, thanks to you, I've come to respect street musicians a lot more than I used to.
There was these two old friends I met in Madison Square(Park?) in NY who got together and began playing their guitars and singing. I could tell they were really enjoying themselves! I ended up listening them for a good long time and it made me smile a lot. :)

I really like the lines in this. And...the positioning? Not sure if you'd call that composition or not. I like this, nonetheless. Great shot.
