Violinist performs in a busy Turkish pazar

This man was playing his violin in the entry way of Izmir's massive Kemeralti bazar in Turkey. What caught my eye as hundreds of people quickly passed him by was that he seemed to be overflowing with contentment and joy, as if playing his violin was the only thing in the world that he wanted to be doing. On top of this, the scene just swelled with the vibrant colors and bustling action of Turkey.
