Street Artists



(Musician: Kippy Marks, Photographed at Powell BART station)

Walking around in the streets of the City will expose you to unlimited photo opportunities and surprises, some positive, some negative.

On the negative side, you will undoubtedly notice people sleeping in cardboxes, roaming around with nothing more than the clothes on their back and what they drag in front of them in a cart.

On the positive side, you may run into all kinds of musicians, street artists, or impromptu entertainment...

Blogger / photographer Brad Evans photographed another musician at that very same location. I highly recommend you check out the caption Brad wrote to go with the picture. It won't take any time at all to read, and just might make you feel really good inside! Sure worked for me! :)

Have a good week, everybody!

Merci Tomate farcie, grand Merci pour la traduction pour Abe. Cela m'a rendue toute émue. Et j'ai vu que Abe t'a remerciée sur mon blog.
Je viens de lire l'histoire de cette violoniste qui partage sa quête avec l'homme au fauteuil roulant. Que c'est beau ! Un très beau geste toute comme le tien que j'apprécie fortement. Thank you one more !

Well, T.F., that is a WONDERFUL photo!
Nice work!

And I've got to thank you from the bottom of my heart for "turning me onto" Brad Evans -- his work is OUTSTANDING!

You know, I rode BART for curiosity a few times when it first began, but haven't had a good reason to ride it since... It seemed like a lot of fun, but I suppose the feeling is different if you're heading off to work...

A few weeks ago I went down into the station at the Cable Car Turnaround, walked a long distance, and then came up someplace else -- even that was a neat experience...   I should try that more often -- didn't realize that there would be photo opportunities like what you and Brad found...

Ce n'est pas à Montmartre que j'avais un studio mais à Montparnasse. Quartier bien connu de Paris, pour également ses artistes peintres, sculpteurs et acteurs. Pas trrès loin du Jardin du Luxembourg que je connais commema poche.

Marie Reed: Thank you for your visit! I think it was probably one of my relatives, because I'm still here ;)

Claude: No problem, glad to help! :)

Brad: Yeah, mine is the Halloween version ;) I just noticed that I didn't get your name right. I'll go fix that right away.

PhotoADay: Glad I could help! :)

Voilà ce qu'on peut faire quand on se rebiffe et je le conseille à chacun qui peut avoir des ennuis avec ce gros connard de sarkozy ou sa clique de clowns de flics minables : je suis en train de régler un petit problème du genre détail avec cette grosse tache de si peu président de la république Française, en lui envoyant un avocat pour mises sous surveillance illégales, lynchage inspiré de bonnes vieilles méthodes qui ne déplairaient pas au ku ku klan, lynchage qui n'a mobilisé personne sur le web ou dans la presse et plagiat vulgaire et ridicule qui passe à la télé. Avis à la population et merci pour l espace d'expression. Voilà, ceci est également une tentative de gros scandale public parce que ça calme pas mal les gros connards.
et dotclear dit :Vous êtes exclu de ce forum. L'administrateur ou le modérateur qui vous ont exclu envoient le message suivant -
Quels Pétochards gerbants à Dotclear de la " blogosphère " :)

Quant a sarkozy, s'il n'aime pas le web, et s'il n'aime pas la rue qui sait, la preuve, très bien se défendre, qu'il la quitte !

No problem, Brad!

Anonymous: You need to find another place to rant about Sarkozy. While I'm all for freedom of speech, and do not particularly like to moderate people's comments, I think you're clearly borderline here. Knock it off, please.

Anonyme: Trouvez-vous un autre forum pour vous plaindre de Sarkozy, SVP. Je suis pour la liberté d'expression et tout ça, et je n'aime pas beaucoup policer les commentaires, cependant, faut pas dépasser certaines limites. On se calme, OK?

Just to be clear with Anonymous: the reason I'm reacting like this is not because of how you feel about Sarkozy, but because you keep using this blog to spew your venom anonymously. That's just cowardly. Sign up, make up a profile and take responsibility for your own statements. Did you want to say anything about the musician, the photograph, any other post on this blog, or that maybe I s*ck? Feel free. Anything else, well, I guess you have the wrong forum, so give us a break here, uh?

It is nice to have background music for life's daily routinues.

Brad's story was really cool. Thanks for the link.
