“Word on the street.”  Musicians in Chicago, IL, 12 July 2009.


Soapbox moment: I strongly support public artists like muralists, sidewalk chalk artists, street musicians, and street poets.  So yes, in exchange for the privilege of taking these photos and listening to some great music, I did tip both these musicians.  I also thanked them.  You should, too.

  1. Yes, I think that’s a very good point Sam. I always think anyone who has the guts to perform in public deserves a cheer whatever they’re doing. Like the new layout btw, it’s very neat xx

    1. Thanks! Glad you like it, especially since you complimented the old layout.

      FYI: That woman in the subway was amazing! I’m serious about her playing all her instruments at once, and I think if she could have managed it she would have worked in more. The best part was when she thanked Jesus for her talent between every song–it was actually quite sincere and very endearing. I wish I’d had my actual camera instead of my wife’s camera-phone, but I still love that photo just for the memory. 🙂
