My Bonnie Lies Over Pike Place and First Street
They say Grunge Rock was invented in Seattle. For those who don't know what this music genre is, think of the unshaven Curt Cobain, torn Levis and plaid shirt bought at the Salvation Army Thrift Store. The music was very popular in the 90's. This street musician is a throwback from that era. Maybe she didn't get the memo. She's definitely into the Grunge thing mixed with hipster elements - (notice the skinny jeans and the sailor's cap).
As people were was watching the fish throwing ritual at Pike Place Market, this musician was singing Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit while accompanying herself with the accordion. Brilliant. Again for those who haven't heard this song, I suggest you YouTube it and you'll probably appreciate the irony of this charade.
For this image, I rendered it as a fake HDR that I thought would be appropriate for the grungy scene. Taken with the Fujifilm X100 point and shoot. Hope you enjoy this silly post.
