393/365 - Street Drummers
August 28, 2014. The drummer with the makeshift kit and the Ludwig Supraphonic snare is often at the corner of Adams and Wabash near my job. He's quite good and that snare sounds great. I've often wanted to stop and photograph him, but not without throwing a couple of bucks in his bucket. Today, he was with another drummer that I've seen in the subway several times, and in the same spot yesterday with a sax player playing "Fantasy," by Earth, Wind, and Fire. They were just killing it, and I had to stop and take photos (and drop some bills). The drummer on the right also appears in one of my Subway Metal photos - Day 82, actually. And of course, "Remember The Alamo!"
