Huntington Beach Pier

Banjo player at the Huntington Beach Pier.

This street performer at the Huntington Beach Pier is one of many that can be found any day of the week. I watched him play for several minutes, although he was very good, he didn’t get too many tips. He was better than the other performers that day so I wonder how much he actually made.

I don’t think street performers/musicians do it only for the money, I’m assuming it’s the thrill of playing for people and getting some positive feedback. Oh, and yes I did give him a tip! What about you? Do you stop and listen to street performers or just walk by?

By the way, the original photo was in color, but I felt the image would look better in B&W, so I desaturated the image and added a second layer to give it a little crispier feel.
