Cuban Musician, pastel, Bohoy

In a small fishing village of Cojimar, Cuba, referred to often in Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea, I saw this man ambling down a deserted, colorful street. Was this 'old' man with his instrument going to his street spot to play for the tourists; was he a 50s Buena Vista Social Club musical artist on his way to the club, or..? Either one- a musician. A photographer friend of mine, Lou, once told the story of seeing what appeared to be a homeless man, with tattered clothes and gnarly hands; unkempt, and seemingly lost with probably nothing in his pockets. Like most street people he was carrying a bag. All of a sudden he opened the bag, pulled out his guitar and began to play a mesmerizing, hauntingly beautiful spanish guitar melody that blew everyone away. You can't judge a book by its cover-- nor a man.
