    Blues Singing from Friday afternoon on Monroe Center St near Rosa Parks Circle.

    On the right is Gregory King, and Drew Pentkowski on the left. Drew is the street performer, the guy on the right happened to come by and just started singing his head off, he did this until he had to pack it up and go home, he was um very passionate about singing the blues.

    This was during the 3 week Art Prize event (ends on october 7th).

    Interesting character! I don't use my cameras for video very often, but this is the type of thing that I find the video capability perfect for - spontaneous moments that otherwise would be lost. :thumbup:

    Wow, that's really interesting, great timing on being there to capture that!

    I really love blues music myself for the rawness of it, which this certainly had a lot of being a spontaneous moment. It sure looks like it means a lot to that guy too :biggrin:
