The Accordion Player, Waynesville, NC - 2012
(Click on photo to enlarge.)
Even with all the time I had off from work during the Christmas/New Year holidays, I didn't spend much time out making photos. So it was a good time to play catch up with some photos I had made in previous months, but hadn't done anything with yet.
I captured this accordion player at a street festival in Waynesville last October. The original color photo was not much more than a quick snapshot. There was a crowd of people behind her that made a distracting background, and they had to go. Once on a plain background, I converted the photo to a toned B&W, and added a soft, white vignette for a more aged look.
