With a Banjo on His Knee

Providence, Rhode Island
I went downcity at lunch today for a bit of street photography. It didn't take long to find today's photo. About a hundred yards from where I parked, I spotted this gentleman sitting on a bench in the Roger Williams National Memorial strumming a banjo. The snow and ice on the ground tell us that winter is still here, but today's mild weather had him relaxing in the park. It's a common site in Rhode Island as winter comes to a close. People take advantage of any uptick in the temperature to get outside.
Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX. I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, and boost black. A levels adjustment was added in PSE.
