The Violinist of the Day

The Violinist

Photographer's Description:

While on my way home from work I spotted this little 95+ year old spanish man just off the freeway feeder in Houston. He was definitely not your tipical begger as he had a hard time even walking.

He was happy as a teenager in love for the first time and was playing and singing his soul out to all the street cars passing by.

I pulled over and signaled to him to come my way and he slowly walked over singing even louder with a large smile for the camera.

He was more than happy to finish the day me, however after taking 50 pics I handed him a gift; he blew me a kiss and ended his time with a bow

Truly a man in love for the last time.
