    Frank is a street musician that I met for the first time a little over a year ago. Since, then we've gotten to be friends as I've seen him many times playing at various street locations as well as in clubs and cafes. He's actually a professor at one of the universities here, although his true passion is as a saxophonist and musician, playing anywhere, everywhere and internationally. His ability as a musician is extraordinary being able to improv and comp to anything at the drop of dime. His ability to interact with his audience is what draws so many people to him though.

    Just a few shots that I've processed out of the hundred or so I shot of him over the course of two hours while listening to his music as well as watching him interact with the crowd. The little baby boy was quite cute as he was captivated by the music and Frank would grab his hand and allowing him to help play along without skipping a beat.

    Very nice! They are all excellent, but I particularly like the next to last shot.
