Schlosser and a sign of spring
Today's image is titled "Schlosser and a sign of spring" and was photographed by Kristian Knutsen.
Here's a familiar near-spring sight: this photo shows the outsider musician and busker Art Paul Schlosser performing on State Street before a gaggle of uninitiated high school students in town for a state tournament. This particular group was one of scores roving about the downtown during the final day of the 2008 WIAA Boys Basketball Tournament on Saturday. This was the second to last of seven state tourneys in town since mid February, the last being the Girls Basketball finals next weekend.
The slow thaw of late winter can almost be marked by the succession of state tournaments held in town, and the clusters of visitors listening to tunes on a kazoo.
