05-22-09 Paris Street Performers


This photo was taken on a “walking tour” of Paris that was part of the last school trip I took with students. We saw various parks and buildings but at one point, while walking through an arcade, we encountered this group of street musicians.

I wanted more than the musicians in the photo and so I walked behind the group and framed the violinist between two of his companions. At the moment I took the photo, the violinist looked my way. This is a brief encounter between me and one of the Earth’s 6.7 billion inhabitants frozen in 1/60 of a second.
