And this is how I spent yesterday morning just north of Kansas City Missouri, only about 4 inches when done but enough to make me get off the road.

Oodles of “Noodles”

While one of the more colourful street performers of Market square in Knoxville, Noodles as he is known can’t play a complete song and is totally annoying to passersby as well as other more talented street performers. Armed with his alto sax and dance moves Noodles serenades with squeeks and toots in search of tips. But heck…he tries and looks the part doing it.. 🙂

Black and White Tuesday

Last Saturday I spent the day in downtown Knoxville Tennessee for the farmers market, my stepdad Chuck is a woodturner and has a booth to sell his excellent hand turned wood bowls and peppermills. If interested in a cool gift check out his website@ http://www.tellicoturnings.com. Back to the post, this weekend at home I was trying to get away from my norm of wildflowers and bugs and nature in general and do some street photography, this posed some interesting problems with lighting and various ISOs and I used my flash alot for fill. I think I did o.k. and there are more street pics to come this week… 🙂
