*** Mini-Challenge #565 "Taking it to the streets" ***

The 565th Mini-Challenge theme is TAKING IT TO THE STREETS.

The connection to the Doobie Brothers' wonderful anthem...


...is just the way my mind works - although I am thinking of giving people who saw the Doobie Brothers live, back in the day, extra points in the judging for showing impeccable taste and or a misspent youth - the latter qualification will attract double extra points.

What I'm looking for is images of musicians working the streets, the squares and the market places of your part of the world, or places you visited on holiday.

There is no stipulation of the type of music or the instruments used - and the setting can be anything from small concert setups in village squares to buskers on the corner. Big concert venues and major rock gigs are specifically excluded.

The Challenge starts now, and ends on Monday, November 18th at 23:59 GMT


1. Submit a maximum of 3 Entries to win and/or as many Exhibits as you wish.

2. Photos must have been taken by you but can be from any camera (including cell phones) and may have been taken at any time.

3. There are no restrictions on processing or on composite shots - all are acceptable. It's the image that counts, not how it was produced. Post processing and modification can be as light as you like, all the way up to fully abstract or composite images.

4. Please state in the header of your post, or in the comments bar below each image, whether they are "Entry" or "Exhibit". Non-labelled submissions will be assumed to be Exhibits.

5. It's best to post all images using the "Reply to thread" button below this first post. This makes collating the entries and exhibits much easier, but images sometimes need to be posted in comments when sub-threads develop, to keep the sense of the conversation going, so I will hunt right through the posts looking for valid images.

6. At the end of this challenge, I will announce First, Second and Third places from the Entries in a separate RESULTS thread, and I may select some other submissions, entries or exhibits, for Honourable Mentions.

Grand Prize: The First Place winner becomes the host of the next challenge and has 3 days to begin it. The winner can respond to the challenge setter with a forum post or PM. If that individual doesn't respond in 3 days, or has to decline to serve, the Second Place winner becomes the next host. If that individual declines to serve, the Third Place winner becomes the next host.
