Soft Jazz by joysabin

Soft Jazz

Yesterday's shots were just plain yucky. The sun was out today and the temperature was very nice, about 52f so, off I went to see what was happening downtown.

This gentleman was playing the most soulful jazz on his base. The acoustics at this corner are rather wonderful. His basket was gathering lots of appreciation for his music.

I motioned with my camera, asking if I could take his picture and he kindly nodded. We spoke briefly, I thanking him for brightening the day with his exquisite sounds and he kept smiling and playing. I didn't want to break the spell so I didn't ask him his name but I will count this as an entry to my stranger's project anyway.
This is magical! Instant fav

@amyk The warm temperature was just what I needed to get out and explore. It was such lovely jazz that he was playing. Thank you so very much.

I love the contrast of the sandy colors/textures with the brightness of his guitar

really nice picture - I like that you took the picture from the side instead of a frontal portrait.

This is beautiful, like a painting. I wish you could give a print of this to him. :)

Wonderful portrait and so great that you’re taking pictures of strangers. I’m usually hesitant to do that.

@dustyloup The music that he was playing was almost akin to a pied piper, so many stopped by and fed is basket.

@runner365 Thank you so much, this side had less people walking by and let his instrument have a stronger voice.

@octogenarian Thank you so very much for the fav. What a fabulous idea, next time I will try to remember and share my email.

@haskar He was such a gentle soul and his music was also such a pleasure to listen to. Thank you so very much for the fav.

@robz I am very appreciative of the fav. He was such a nice person to encounter downtown. The base is one of my favorites.

@jernst1779 Thank you a great deal, most thankful for the fav.

@redy4et I did actually start on my strangers project about a year and half ago. I go in spurts of finding the courage to ask, so I guess I'd better gather as many as I can while I'm not so scared.
