Looking Into the Past, a photo project by Jason Powell who literally juxtaposes an old photo over a present day street scene, or building, in Washington DC. An interesting way to look back in time.

World famous violinist plays in Washington Metro… unnoticed

Monday, 16 March, 2009

Joshua Bell played on his violin (worth $3.5 million by the way) in a Washington DC train station unnoticed for almost an hour. At least he made $32 for his trouble.

In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.
