Railway Station Violins

An old violin player in the subway of the Nuremberg Railway Station playing for some coins.
He played nice, he was friendly and he had a piece of an old newspaper with him. The article said “Street Violin Player Brutally Attacked”.
Why is the world always unfair to the poorest ones?
To be honest, I didn’t feel very well photographing the poor man with my expensive electronic toy. Of course I asked whether I can shoot some photos.
Finally I came to the conclusion that I cared for his life for at least 2 minutes instead of walking by without noticing.
The violin player and I both smiled when we shaked hands and wished each other luck and health. That can’t be a bad thing.
