These are fantastic! What kind of camera are you using and do you have a lens?

The man- did you talk to him? Did he know you were taking his picture? I'm so interested to know his story.

More more more!!!!

Not the greatest story actually... But, there was a line of people waiting to get on the cable car. Where the line formed was where he was sitting. He was playing his harmonica and singing very soulful blues.. Like...

Ohhh betta watch out... (then harmonica) betta watch out for that woman... (harmonica) cause I got a woman (harmonica) aint no good for me...

I hope you get what I'm saying. Daniel Recoded his music. I'll have to see if I can post it on here. Maybe from Youtube then to here.

Yes, I think he was aware that I was taking his picture. I felt a little weird at first about it. But I wanted the pictures! His songs were funny too. He was quite the "entertianer". He was sitting and performing right in the middle of where all tourists go... so I would suspect others have taken pictures also. I didn't talk to him. He was very much in his own world while playing and singing. I did want to touch his shoulder, but I didn't know how he would respond, so I didn't. Then we gave him money and boarded the cable car.

My camera is a Nikon D40. I have a couple different lenses. This was with my regular lens- not zoom or anything. I was up really close him. I was standing right in front of him in the line.

I'm glad you enjoyed the pics!
