Harmonica

Harmonica

An old homeless man plays his harmonica for pesos on the steps of a metro station. I gave him a few pesos. More for the photo than his musical ability. This shot got me through round two of the latest Flickr 64 Challenge, but failed to make it to the Lightbox on DMU. Critics didn’t like the vignetting and processing, and thought I should have just posted the original. Actually, the original sucked. There was a little too much noise, and because of the high contrast range betwwen the interior and exterior of the metro station, the highlights above his head were blown beyond recovery.
