One time, when walking around the French Quarter in New Orleans a few years back...I found myself drawn to find this haunting melody that echoed down a side street. I came upon this mo-hawked busker, who was playing that unknown tune. All he asked, in return for this shot, was some change to feed his sleeping puppy. I obliged.

    I also agree, this is a fabulous capture Chris and one can almost feel the love between the dog and his owner despite the lack of funds.
