… run into a musician, in most cases a rapper, who will offer you a freshly burned CD with his own music on in.

I met this guy and he handed me one of his CD’s and told me that he wanted to be on MTV one day. I could give him whatever amount of cash my heart was feeling.

After a little, nice chat my heart still didn’t feel much for buying music I’ve never had the chance to listen to. So I decided to give his career a start in the sense of catering. I gave him some cash for a hot dog and after a hug I went on with my street photography journey that I’ve planned for this day.

Of course I took this picture of him before I left. I also had to promise him that once he was on TV I could thank him by charging $300,- for a shoot instead of $1000,- (this were his words, not mine).

Camera: Canon EOS 7D
Lens: Sigma 17-50 2.8
Shutter Speed: 1/80 of a second
