Guitar String

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Tara Pichelmeyer

While walking in downtown Quito, Ecuador with a photography class, I spot this older man concentrating on stringing his guitar. With a little white bucket set aside next to him, after capturing this photo I placed some money in the bucket and he just gave me a friendly smile and I was on my way.

Location: Quito, Ecuador
