Street Buskers

Very different from the summer months, Santa Fe in the winter seems to have less sunshine and more clouds, but the culture remains the same! I was quite surprised to see these street buskers entertaining in the Plaza on Sunday morning--it's not a common sight. If it's a festival or market, there is cultural entertainment, but I haven't seen buskers before; but then again, I'm not here year round. The music and song were a pleasant experience and brightened the cloudy sky that day.  Weather at this time of year is more than interesting.  The sun which seems to be constant in the summer by contrast in February shines brightly for awhile and then the clouds roll over the bright orb. It's a mixture of weather elements.  The sun, however, appeared to be brighter and lasted longer yesterday than it has since we've arrived.

  2. I would be tossing coins in their fiddle cases! Great shot. I adore the city daily photo shots that really capture the essence of the community. It is hard to do every day. This is one of those shots. Great slice of life in Santa Fe.

  8. I love the yellow roses and sashes-- very sunshiny, even on a cloudy day.
