Can I Play You A Tune?

May 01, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

'Can I Play You A Tune?' was photographed during a photo walk in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina for the Project 365 I was doing at that time.  During my Project 365 from 2011 to 2012, I would go on daily photo walks to try and find a compelling photograph for the day to use.  On July 23, 2012, I came across the gentleman in this photograph.  The gentleman was sitting there playing his guitar.  I immediately found the scene interesting.  Wilmington has a thriving artist community and I thought this would be a good photograph that symbolized what an up and coming artist is going through.  I asked the gentleman if I could take his photograph and he agreed to my request.  I told him just to pretend as if I wasn't there and he resumed playing his instrument.  This gentleman wasn't looking for a handout, he was playing for sake of the love of music, all he wanted to do was for people to hear the songs and stories that he had to share.  Although I selected a different photograph to represent day 314 of my Project 365, I'm thankful that I captured this image.  This picture is an example of what I always try to strive for whenever I taking a photograph of anything which is to capture, preserve, and convey the story of the subject or moment.
