The Accordionist


The Accordianist, originally uploaded by mc_bds.

Robert Nicholson playing some soulful tunes with his Italian accordian on Yates Street.
He set up just to my right as I was having a coffee outside. The perfect opportunity to extend my range and attempt a "people sketch".
I generally find it tough to capture people in a sketch because of the constant movement. This was a good subject for me as the movement was quite minimal.
Also, I've always liked accordians...
Robert, if you are visiting this blog - Hello - and best of luck in getting your carpentry shop back up and running!
