Saw this chap in Bath, UK, one of my favourite places for urban candids. I passed him a couple of times and he was always smiling.

Here's another busker I found whilst in Cornwall.

He was very well spoken and called me sir when I added to his collection.

Really?

I want to give him a copy of that photo as I think he would appreciate it. When did you see him there?

He plays here often.. My office window overlooks Boots, and he plays in an alley way type thing just to the right of it.... he plays "one love" quite a bit :) His music echos straight up into our office - at times it can be annoying, like the current person who's playing the James Bond theme on his guitar...over and over and over and over and over and over... you get the idea!

Last time I saw him there was, was probably 3/4 weeks ago? Maybe he moves around this cities within a small radius.. Bath is only like what, 40mins away from Cardiff?

Cool photo though, I love the movement of the guy to the left hand side in the foreground :)

The selective coloring really works well here. Love his expression!
