He could barely move on the crowded street among thundering cars, they were passing by. As I raised the camera to capture this moment, his tender voice cried out, "you should take my picture while playing my violin, young man. I am a real musician". I had this chat with this gentleman during my visit in my hometown Izmir, in 2022. Izmir is considerably a big city with its around 4 million residents. In this turmoil, he proudly moved away and faded out.

Suddenly, my sister's voice raised, and asked me if it is possible the gentleman is the same whom I came across about 4 years ago in the downtown. In 2018, before the pandemic I was again in Izmir to visit my parents. As we were walking through the old bazaar, we had met a street musician with his violin. He was playing an old song, as I took his picture. Is it possible that I came across the same gentleman? Maybe, you can recognize him:
