      he played the banjo wonderfully and had a modern flavor to it. was nice to sit back an listen, forget that there are thousands of people surrounding us..a brief escape from the chaos of the market! so glad i could share a bit of that feeling..thank you endlessly for your kindness, dear barbara

    I honestly, seriously, almost posted this one on dA last night!!! I had the page ready and then for some reason stopped myself...guess now I know why! ;)
    love the feeling of the market you've captured here, sweetie..the surreal, floaty feeling I always have when I'm there (dunno why?!) is accurately portrayed in this amazing shot..love your unorthodox tilting of the shot as well. beautiful work, addam..and very proud of you for having the courage to keep shooting.
    he was a really good player! loved listening to him!
