"Kennewick's Sax Man"
The day was too beautiful to stay home and mow the lawn, so knowing that there are a few things down toward downtown Kennewick I've been wanting to draw, I headed that way this morning.
This guy isn't one the things I had in mind. He just happened to be there on the corner where he likes to hang out and I was able to find a good parking spot where I could draw in a clandestine fashion.
I think I'm a bit like him, I love to hear the echo affect he gets off the surrounding buildings. I wonder if that is why he usually chooses this particular corner to work his wailin' sax? I bet it is.
Listening to him you often hear familiar tunes, but more often than not he's improvising and he's pretty good at it.
