Blowing my own trumpet!
34

Or should that be 'playing my own guitar'?

Whichever, I was chuffed to see that my snap was awarded first place in the 'Street musician playing' challenge.

Wish You Were Here (Prague)

He was playing the acoustic part from Pink Floyd's 'Wish you were here'.  I stood and listened for a while, then dropped some coins into his bag.  He'd definitely earned them. Only then did I get the shot.  A bit of a Leica Moment, with the PL 25mm.

I did get some interesting comments on this shot last time I posted it here, including the suggestion that I should crop it tighter to remove the left quarter or so.  I think that's good advice, but I was feeling lazy when I entered this.

This, by the way, also marks the tenth image of mine to get a first place in a challenge.  (And, in the interests of balance, I should say that I've now got over 70 in 40th place or lower.  So I can't really think of myself as much more than a chimpanzee bashing a typewriter!)

Photography is about light, not light-proof boxes.
