Four Strong Winds That Blow Lonely, Seven Seas That Run High . . .


Renee bought a banjo yesterday.  She and Michelle found a bench and Renee played folk songs.  Michelle sang harmony.  I wandered past.

Sweet Jack!

Wonderful spirit here, I would have loved to be there. I love your portraits, the 'under the umbrella' one of a few days ago was brilliant too!

I rarely do portraits and wish I did more. It's easier to do big cats !

Interesting how simple pleasures make the day seem so much brighter. Great candid, Jack.

You wandered past but hesitated for a moment and caught a spontaneous burst of song. They look happy, you did a good job Jack and captured a moment in time! Oh hark at me getting all 'poetic' haha!

Nice slice of life capture. I would have been forced to inquire, 'What prompts someone to purchase a banjo on a Monday, plop down on a street bench and croon?'

Lovely!

One sees a lot more street musicians with guitars rather than banjos.

I once lived in a townhouse in Arlington, VA, with a next door neighbor who decided to learn how to play the banjo. Pluck. Pluck. Pluck.

Well, with you at the drums, you've already got a band!

Halcyon said...

I only appreciate banjo music in moderation. ;)

Sharon said...

You've captured this happy moment very well!

You got the story, took their names, and captured the scene... Jack, I think that you have morphed into a candid portrait photographer! Wonderful!

Bises,

You are really good at these street/people shots, Jack! I love them! Such a great way to visit your world! Enjoy your day -- camera in hand!

You was lucky to wander about there at the right moment, but your picture caught the moment perfectly. Excellent portrait and street scene!

Karl said...

Lovely scene, Jack!

Randy said...

What a great shot Jack. I like that you caught her in mid-song.

I love it-- what a wonderful portrait! I am often too shy to take pictures of people, but I'm glad you aren't!

Malyss said...

They seem to have fun!That's a great portrait, I think, of a beautyful friendship!

joo said...

You were at the right place at the right time Jack:) Terrific!

JM said...

Every time I see a banjo I remember that great scene in 'Deliverance'. Great portrait, Jack.

Regina K said...

Great find.

Farmchick said...

What a great moment you captured. A banjo....not your everyday instrument.

Bob Crowe said...

Oh, you're making me think of Ian and Sylvia, thereby dating myself. Looks like Renee knows what she's doing.

My grandmother played a mandolin-banjo - no better way to spread a little cheer!

Steffe said...

Nice timing from everyone here. Buying the banjo, finding that bench, and then you arrive to capture the scene.
