14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Accordion player in the Old Town of Warsaw

This man was not a tourist attraction or out to earn money. When I tried to give him a few bills for his beautiful playing he refused. Some people dropped coins as they passed and he just laughed. We talked for a minute in Polish and he said he was just looking for an enjoyable way to spend the sunny day outside in the town square.
