The Golden Flute

The San Francisco Chinese New Year Festival and Parade.

The Festival is on Grant Street running through the heart of San Francisco's Chinatown. In addition to the hordes of humanity, craft booths, food stalls and puppeteers there were a few musicians. This fellow was playing his flute in front of an bank emblazoned with these cool golden dragon seals. I gave him some money. I assumed he would play something like the "Golden Dragon" a Chinese folktale but instead he played Mozart "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" (A Little Night Music). Surreal.

And now I wonder what the Nachtmusik will sound like on that instrument. Great picture and composition.
Very good street shot : Thumbs up !!
