Audience of One

This guy emerged from the National Gallery of Victoria with his Cello, sat on the fountain walls outside and then commenced playing. I didn’t even get a chance to hear a note before he was interrupted by somebody he knew, but did manage to get this shot of his totally immersive expression.

I spent about three hours and attempts trying to process this shot without completely making a mess of it. Too many steps to recall.
