Continuing with my series of Portraits of Street Performers, it was easy to be captivated by the music this gentleman was providing on a beautiful warm afternoon. Unfortunately for me, fortunately for him, he was on the a very busy corner of a very busy flea market. For me the streets were jammed pack and there was no place to sit down and just enjoy the music, fortunately for him, plenty of people were enjoying his music and his violin case was seeing lots of use as people dropped a few coins in.
I moved in close to isolate him from the busy background, and used a narrow depth of field to limit focus on his hand rather than his face, even with that choice we can still see his face clearly enough to know he is concentrating on the job of providing music to the crowd.
