Random Encounters: Urban Cowboy

This was a surreal encounter. He started setting up at Beitou park shortly after I finished photographing the Chinese Go match. At first, everything seemed pretty normal. He was a street musician tamely dressed in a stripped polo and jeans setting up his “stage” with a keyboard, signs, donation box, and self-recorded CDs for sale.

I don’t have a studio. There are some available to me, but they are not conveniently located and the additional transportation and rental costs involved make using them an ‘by-specific-need-only’ proposition and not part of what I can normally offer. I am working on it though, thanks to great deals at Phottix and a spare space at home set stuff up in. Until then, the city is my studio.
