Photo Hunt: Theme: Music


I am posting this early because of my 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk this weekend.

(See posts below about that.) I'll try to post that it's posted, but we start out at about 4 a.m. on Friday, so I am not likely to get to comment at the PhotoHunt site.

As before, I actually have better pictures for the theme, but they involve school children whose images I do not have permission to post.

Added Sept 10: For those who wondered about the instrument, it is a saxophone. Now, which range of sax, I can't tell you. I could ask the student who was playing it and betray my own ignorance. One of my daughters played baritone sax, and it was huge, so I know it's not that--and Kenny G plays one that looks nothing like this and has a higher pitch. This one is in between.

The sheet music, BTW, is part of a page of The Star Spangled Banner.

What I like best about the photo is the shadow which repeats the line of the top of the sax..

I am here early at your blog too! I hope lots will come to visit your entry while you are away "walking for a cure so you can enjoy their comments when you finish your walk." I will mention it when I post that "mine's up" on Friday.

That is a beautiful photo composition with the theme for this week: music. I wish you had written a little about it because I don't know much about musical instruments. . .

Let me know how you did walking your 60 miles -- almost three years ago, I walked the Portland Marathon and finished but I could not do three of them in succession! More power to you!

Good luck on your walk. This looks a little like my house because my son just started band.

A lot of band memories for me in your photo. Those high school days were the good days!

I commend you for doing the Breast Cancer walk. Great photo you posted, but I agree with Paulie, I am music illiterate too. What kind of instrument is it? Have a great weekend.

Paulie said...

Me again! Thanks for the explanation -- made your photo so much more interesting. I, too, like the shadow it displays in the photo. Would have been a great entry when we had "shadows" for a theme. It is terrific for THIS theme too.
