Nagai The Busker

Nagai The Busker

a forlorn tune resonates the chilly winter air
it’s been a quiet night, a buskers plight
Nagai croons and strums with unassuming flair
an aural delight, deserving a beam of limelight

Roaming the Nakasu area to check out the famed Fukuoka Yatai food stalls and some night photography, I was also rewarded with the pleasure of coming across this busker at the bridge on Kokutai Road. I stopped to listen for a while, took a few photos, gave him a tip, and walked on. He was pretty good, in my opinion, but there weren’t many who stopped to listen that night, which I thought was rather unfortunate for him.

  1. Again a very clear shot in low light. I like how you framed him against the scaffolding behind him and beside the road. He looks insignificant, but every person and small moment and gesture often makes a difference. Very kind of you to have tipped him. It probably made his night.

    Gung hei fatt choi! Hope you have a prosperous year all round, Ken. I certainly enjoyed my reunion dinner and hope you enjoyed yours 🙂
