About the Shot
Wandering around Prague, Czech or any european city, you will come across many street musicians. I don't know how it is in Prague but in France you actually have to send in a demo to be approved to play on the street in public. Which I think is a great idea, because who wants to hear some banshee screaming for money?? right? We walked pass this man a few times and I decided to take a shot. He had this funky, cool looking instrument that you wound and turned and strummed. Very strange, but very beautiful sounds came out of it. If you can't tell by the clothing, it was Freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezing that day, in fact, the entire trip was pretty darn cold, but Christmas time in Europe is magnificent. The crisp air, mulled wine on the streets, people and families walking around, taking their time and enjoying the day/night. Absolutely perfect. It is probably the main thing I think people should learn, is to relax, it's the holidays, take your time and "enjoy" the day. No need to rush, rush, rush. Even if it is not a holiday, relax!
