One Man Band

Lately I've been featuring artists and performers on the Inner Harbour Causeway. Today I'm going out to the Saanich Peninsula to pick some strawberries or, more accurately, to photograph other people picking strawberries. But before I leave the causeway I have to post some photos of the most enduring Causeway performer, one man band Dave Harris, whose music has enriched the Inner Harbour for thirty years.
Dave's a consummate musician in the long tradition of minstrel one man bands stretching back to the middle ages and before. It's a pleasure to listen to him play and sing and it's always interesting to see the variety of spectators that watch and listen spellbound.

Oh yeah he is awesome. I've seen him before. I remember having a rest on the wall there and listening to him. Have fun in Saanich!

Speaking of, I would love to see you take some killer shots at the Butterfly Garden. I followed the blue morphos around for an hour but they would never land with their blue wings open.

Great shots of Dave, the ironman, veteran performer of the inner harbour.
The first pic has a 'high-key' polarized effect giving it a special feel.
BTW, Dave is in the process of writing a book on the history of OMB's (one man bands).

Thanks Benjamin. Great shots and I really appreciate the promotion! Cheers!
