Whiter Shade of Pale

Well, that was the song that this subway musician was playing on the Harvard line.  As soon as I pulled this photo up the song popped right into my head.  I wonder if he is still playing underground or hopefully has a warmer gig elsewhere. Stay safe and warm out there, Boston.  (Image first featured here in color)

    How were the acoustics down there? The converging lines make for a very interesting photo.

    Love the song, love the picture. I am taken by how different the photo feels in black and white vs color. As a photographer you know this, obvi, but as a non-photographer it never struck me how different the mood of a photo could be with that difference. The color photo is so vibrant and alive…and the black and white seems much starker, serious, and a little forlorn…—or maybe I’m just thinking of the song! 😀 –Lisa

    I almost always prefer color photos, but this one is really striking in black and white. I love that song, and that happens to me too; a photo or a smell or a sound can make me remember the song that was playing.

    Awwww. I’m all misty. “A Whiter Shade of Pale” was my prom’s theme. I wonder how long it will take to get that tune out of my head. 🙂
