The love for music-Weekly foto challenge : Beloved.

Juan, 67 years old is a Peruvian musician that caught my attention while I was walking around the historic center of Lima-Peru.
He used to be a professional trumpeter, but unfortunately, he was involved in an accident where he lost his teeth and now he uses a dental prosthesis.
He no longer has the strength in his lips to play at a professional level, that’s why he became a street musician and he makes a living from it.
I have chosen this photo for the weekly photo challenge “Beloved” because I was impressed by the love and passion that Juan had for his music and for his instrument.

  1. Ain’t no mountain high enough when you are passionate about something.
    Hope he is still in love with music

  2. A sad story about Juan and his accident 🙁 I admire him for being strong and keep doing what he loves to do. Thank you for sharing his story, Angela!

    • Thank you, I think that sometimes we give up too soon when we find obstacles but we should never give up doing the things we love. Have a beautiful Sunday.
