accordian player in Union Square.jpg

An accordion player in Union Square Park, New York. He is wearing a rather strange helmet but played pretty well nonetheless. Sorry for the lousy photo, but this was a hit and run with the cell phone camera as I was coming back with photo supplies from Adorama.

LOL He looks like a space musican. Do they have accordian players in space?

Ha, yeah I'm not sure if that is supposed to be a space helmet or what but I think he was comfortably in his own space. If he was going to do the helmet he should have went a little further and doted some funky attire along with it. The shorts and dress socks. . .and then the bizarre helmet looks as if someone placed it on his head as he was performing. . .Still, he was pretty good and I give him his props for being out there.
