He is one of the best street singers in the world. That old and talented man is playing almost everyday in the centre of Brussels. He has become a living monument in the city, everybody loves him!

Please, also have a look at THIS VIDEO showing him playing 2 of his favourite songs (I recorded it yesterday!).

The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10, which has been provided to me by Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.

Singing the Blues

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

A lonesome soul with nothing to lose
Just with my dreaming to burn on and on
Longing for bright days and singing the blues
Everything of yesterdays that's gone
Feelings inside that whisper so softly
And daydreaming in to its summer past
Thoughts that aggravates and want to be
Full of light view that forever shall last

Touch every string in my heart and soul
Give every breath is fullest of life
In its flames burning the unreachable
Make every feeling dark as a coal
And touches my heart to let its beat strife
Something of which is quite unteachable

And then, I have a real very favorite for the picture)which you made of this not common man. Bravo!
