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.
