He does look to be playing for the pidgeon alone! The crowd seem very uninterested. Well seen.

Excellent street shot. I love the how he is abstracted from the crowed, which really does not really care for him. Love the title. Vote.

it's a Via Crucis...
it's a Dream...

The incongruity of the crowd on one side of the barrier and the sole figure playing for a lone pigeon on the other side is striking. Another incongruity -- the majority of the people in his audience are less attentive that that pigeon is.
Wonderful image, Jenene.

Agree with JD, he probably dreams this into a big, attentive audience...but the reality is nobody is paying any attention to him except the pidgeon! Well seen.

Are they all in line to see him? Of course not. It is just his dream, or what's left of it. The gray sky is just another touch of real life.

Great scene..theres alot of people not so much of a distraction for me its just nice that it seems like the player and the pigeon are alone somehow
