September photography challenge is `Music`

Recommended Posts

The theme for the September challenge is `Music` (instruments, buskers, sheet music, absolutely anything linked to music ! )

 

The rules are the same, no more than three photos per person, you must be the owner of the pictures and the closing date is 30th September. 

I will pick the top 8 images and then the choice will be yours.

 

(My pics will follow when i work out how to upload them again !!)

 

Best of luck to you all,

Adrian aka Ace  ;)

Good choice of topic. The world needs all the harmony it can get these days.

 

Here's my first one. A Garifuna man making some music with his grandson in Honduras.

Hard to choose just three.  I'm going to pick three with a world music theme: a sufi dance from Istanbul, Turkey and outdoor musicians from Morocco - Marrakech and the desert.

This gentleman is playing a carpenter's saw. I guess you could say that his music is on the cutting edge.

By one definition, a gentleman is a man who can play the accordion but choses not to.   :)
