Let’s rock this joint

It’s always nice when someone notices the camera and then lets the showman take over – doubly nice when it happens in the soul-sapping environs of the twisting tunnels of Waterloo underground station.

This guy was getting a good return for being more than decent on the guitar and so I set up to take the standard “blurry world goes by” shot that you can get pretty easily at 1/15.

Instead I get treated to a show — which was snapped, in breach of official “Are you a proper photographer?” guidance, in auto mode as I couldn’t twiddle the dial fast enough.

See this shot large here. Some others of buskers on flickr here.

Oh, and he got £1.24 for his trouble, which was the sum total of the change in my pocket.
