Trumpeter

I had a meeting scheduled for 1:30pm across town. I took the opportunity to take the camera for the walk. Just as I was approaching the George Street office, first I heard and then I saw quite a familiar Sydney personality of the Trumpeter.  more

Trumpeter courier – Sydney icon

 on 


The trumpeter courier is one these unlikely characters that become an icon of the city. For years his music has been heard around the CBD. Usually in the mornings or at the end of the business day he stops somewhere and performs a number of well known tunes. While I was photographing him he was playing “El condor passa” – traditional Peruvian tune popularised by Paul Simon.
