The Entertainer

Produce, flowers and prepared food aren't the only goodies you'll find at the weekly South Pas Farmers Market. Last week I found this amazing kid, playing this song with the smooth expertise of a 1920s speakeasy honkytonker.

Hi, This is my first visit to your blog. I'm so happy to have stumbled across it. Your photos really capture my attention. I'm not sure if its the subject matter, lighting, composition/design choices or maybe its all of that. But I'll definitly be back for more.
happy belated B.day.

.......and I remember your piano lesson days and how you played Scott Joplin's, "The Entertainer." And your piano teacher said, "Now Laurie you've played it by ear, now play it from the music as written." Your teacher had a musical laugh and a lot of patience. I got real nostalgic as I clicked on that piece.

What a cute kid. I love his curls and hat with a dollar bill poking up by the rim. Scott Joplin's music transcends time and it's great to know that hasn't changed. Notice the girl's t-shirt? I am an ARTIST! hee hee

Very good black and white photo, it makes me very curious about your town and I believe you passing your love for it to all of us.
I wonder, could we see more of that market?!
