Sicily IV

All I ask for is some small change and a little respect.

Now that's a Sicilian if ever I've seen one! Great portrait!

BOTH from me, John, especially if he's good.

We have a few fiddlers around town here who stand outside of grocery stores scratching away without any talent. I actually feel sorry for them. But when I find one who really knows what he's doing...that's something else altogether. I will always give some change and then immediately ask if I can take his/her picture!

I love this!
John Prior: Not a great musician, but a character, I feel these times present a good opportunity, to pay for the privilege of taking a shot, without offence being given or privacy invaded.

What a character John. I bet he's on the fiddle though.
Cracking portrait John and he seems quite happy to pose for you.
So nicely done. Really.
Super portrait John
