Life Is For Living by DorianStretton Life Is For Living by DorianStretton
A clarinettist playing in the centre of Bedford UK.
Up until about a month before this photograph was taken this guy had been a bus driver, but due to health issues he had to leave that job. He then realised that he would rather do something that he loved, rather than doing the sensible thing like he had always done before, so he decided to become a street musician. Now he is really enjoying his life and his motto is : Life is for living. He just regrets the fact that he had to get to the age of 61 before he realised that.

I love the message behind this shot, it gives the image a whole extra level. Good choice for black and white, it works well with the instrument being a clarinet!! :D

Seriously, I'm absolutely in love with this picture. I'm going to show this picture to anyone who is willing to look at it, just because I love it so much.
