Weekly Photo Challenge : Street Life

Buskers are a part of street life. They give a vibe and a happy atmosphere to any area they perform in.

Last Autumn we were in Hobart, Tasmania. Most days the weather was perfect, (see more posts here) but the day we chose to go to Salamanca Markets (see that post here) it rained. It hadn’t put people off, the markets were crowded. They are known as the biggest and best in Australia.

I was drawn toward the cheerful drone of the bagpipes and the beat of the drum.

The rain did not stop them.

How cold and wet they look, but the Irish jig music they were playing was a cheerful sound.

I’m sure they appreciated this little girl’s donation.
