• Harlem Blues
  • Street Musician

A street musician doing what he does best, working his magic with the tenor clarinet. I'd had spotted him earlier the evening before standing at the corner of 7th Ave on 47th Street, and had snapped a couple of quick shots then. The next day, I ran into him again, this time on 50th, standing in front of the local drugstore, DUANEread. I stood from a distant, burying myself among the pedestrians, and watched him played. He glanced towards my direction a few times. I was however invisible by then, disappearing into the shadows of the other side. Content with what I'd heard, I moved on towards the direction of neon lights, again into the busy streets in search of decisive moments.
