Barcelona – One of the things that Europe taught me is to appreciate street performers. Be they singers, instrument players, mimes, performance artists, and even puppeteers. This month I will be posting photographs of these people that I have met during one of my travels here in this side of the world. Instead of posting a Facebook album of this series, I decided to put this series up here.
This interest in street performer photography started during my trip to Athens in December 2009. While sipping my hot, Greek coffee, a group of musicians called my attention. They were singing Nat King Cole’s Unforgettable. Their performance was so touching that passers-by stopped and listened. The group collected a hatful of euro coins for this 30-minute street performance. The Europeans know how to appreciate art be it inside an opera house or out in the open like the park in Acropolis, in Athens, Greece.
