Busking  on a cold day

Busking on a cold day

These street musicians from Romania were entertaining shoppers in
Dundalk town centre with their lively Gypsy music. They were more
than happy to have their photo taken and I threw some money into
their box. They brought some seasonal good cheer on a bitterly cold day.

Romanian music has a lot of swing and spirit, and that is well conveyed in this lively and endearing image...V

Lovely shot - it's a hard way to earn some pennies in the wintertime.

They look very happy. This is a superb B&W rendition.

I suppose it's difficult to play an accordion with gloves on! You caught some wonderful, cheery expressions.

Poor fellows' fingers must have got cold, though they seem to enjoy their musicmaking.

I suppose gloves isn't an option either - good job you gave them something for a warming cuppa :o)
