Erhu at Eaton

An elderly Chinese basker with his erhu

There was something about this elderly basker playing his er-hu with an ever solemn face that caught my whim. The first time I was walking briskly past and I couldn’t help thinking, “wow, that should make a great photo…” There was something silent about the picture even though it was so crowded and noisy that you could barely hear his music at times.

On my return leg through the tunnel, I dropped him a Toonie and waited at the side for the tunnel to clear to take a couple of shots (I couldn’t resist, really). I really like these.

This is one of the those pictures that I immediately visualized in black and white. It couldn’t be anything else…
