More often than not, it is the people who define the vibe of a place. The world is filled is with colourful personalities, each of whom have a unique story to tell. This is an image I didn't know I took. It's from a collection of images I took in New york over a year ago. I've recently been revisiting past images and this one stood out for me. Personally, I've started taking photography more seriously over the past few months. Last year, I didn't know anything about composition, post processing or even the manual mode in my DSLR . I spent a few hours tweaking this one to get the mood right. The people in this image were so joyful and were immersed in their music. They were playing for hours together. It was a joy to listen to them play and even more to capture this moment in time.
