This gentleman was inside the BART stop, not the most trafficked spot, but interestingly, one where you could actually hear his music.

Some folks were working really hard for their money. Several of those watching wondered whether this was child labor, but the little guy was clearly enjoying hamming it up.

Asking for money on the street is hard work. I mean that; I've done it.

Some weren't working quite so hard.
