Chicago Street Musician


Street Performer

Photo Caption


This fellow seemed oblivious to the hustle and bustle of Chicago streets. Although occasional spectators had dropped a few dollars in his case, he made no pitch other than with that of his instrument. He was quite good. I thought to myself that he could write an interesting book on his experiences.

Here’s another oldie from a “portfolio” of photographs I made and published in 1999. Every so often I see someone who I think must be someone famous. Maybe just a vivid imagination, but I still think this was Newt Gingrinch and he was following me around to see if I would notice. Heh, heh, heh.

A special note:
This photo is being placed in a new category that I am calling “Photography.” Well, it’s a big classification that will include original photos that are being posted for the sake of the photo, as opposed to the story. I am still in the process of figuring out this system and restructuring the entire website. Other photos that I have taken and that are posted with an article will be categorized at “snapshots,” since some of them are what I think are very good shots unto themselves.

    Obama’s Wetback Folly

    Incidentally, I consider illegal immigration a hate crime against black men. It seems to me that Obama placed the fatal bullet in his own foot when he endorsed gay marriage. It was said he capitulated because he needed the money, from suspect sources, for the camping. Suspect sources, Mitt Romney’s bosses too, are the aristocrats […]

    Old White Guys Reinvented

    “Old White Guys” – sounds kinda racist, doesn’t it. For the record, I resent that term. Although I don’t affiliate with the Republican party, I am a white guy, but only considered old by half the population. There is much rhetoric these days about what the Republican party must do to reinvent itself to once […]
