Street Musicians

These fine drummers were playing in downtown Helsinki in a warm summer evening. Helsinki is a very street-musician friendly city - people (usually) appreciate good show and toss a coin sometimes, too. In my opinion people should really always pay for music if they enjoy it (and stop to listen for a while). The drummers were very happy to be photographed. The location was a really dark street between large buildings which covered sun alltogether, so I had to use ISO 400 to get some speed to the D30 and the lens.
