This man was jamming hardcore on his Shamisen one night in Baba. This is the first photo I took of him. I then stood in this spot for about 10 minutes listening to his beautiful music. I took many more photos as the scene changed but this first one is by far the best. Funny, but that's how it often works out.

Waaah, this is a lovely shot! First of all, I love street musicians; he looks so focused and yet relaxed and comfortable with his surroundings. It's like there are three different little worlds in this shot; the musician, the couple around the corner, and the man walking past both of these. It creates a really interesting mood, which the lighting compliments perfectly. Awesome shot!

This man was a god on the shamisen. He really knows how to jam on it. But yeah, I like the little "worlds" in this one too. I ended up taking more shots to try to isolate him, but when I looked through them, this first one really stood out to me as most interesting due to the pockets of humanity. :D Thanks!

I just stick my camera on continuous and then look through them all in the end and pick the ones I want. I always end up reducing about 21 shots to just three . . . sometimes 10 :shrug: I guess I'm too picky.

People moan at me for being too picky, though. They say "WOW, that's so cool!" and I'm all, "Well, actually it isn't."
