Heart of Gold

The Busker

I had left the Corner Shop at lunchtime today to have a walk into the town centre and find a sandwich, as I walked down King Street, South Shields, I heard the falsetto tones of a busker singing;

I want to live,
I want to give
Ive been a miner for a heart of gold.
Its these expressions I never give
That keep me searching for a heart of gold
And Im getting old.

He sounded just like Neil Young, so I had to throw a quid into his hat!

  1. He may have sounded like Neil Young… but he looks like Chevy Chase!

    Thanks for the hydrant comment… I actually considered cropping it… but I thought the “great nothingness” surrounding the hydrant added to the shot.. and what I found funniest about it.

    I really like the photoshop treatment with the B&W over duotone in this shot.
