Recorder



He rode his bicycle into the Elizabeth Park Rose garden, set up a music stand, put a CD into his portable player and accompanied the music with his recorder.  It was quite beautiful.

Use to play the recorder years ago, but never in public. It was to entertain myself. This musician is obviously better than I ever was. I can almost hear the music in your photo.

Seems like you could do a whole blog about Elizabeth Park, so much seems to go on there. This portrait is lovely, Jack. Pity blogs don't have a sound track too.

Unexpected musical surprises are wonderful. I heard a lone flute many, many years ago in the desert of NM that I have never forgotten. It felt as though I was in a different age. . .it was a mystical experience.

You forgot to say that he was wearing a lovely pink tee shirt. Somehow, it adds to the softness.

It's a lovely portrait. Now of course I'm wondering where my recorder is. In my memory, it looks just like his.

Excellent portrait shot, Jack.

This is quite a nice portrait. I vaguely remember learning to play a recorder in grade school....

Mine used to be Red and White in school.

That is a wonderful moment captured! I haven't played a recorder since school days long ago, how lovely this must've been. Love his concentrating expression.

I had a recorder when I was in college. It was almost as cool as having an autoharp. This is an intimate portrait.

Great portrait with layers of color and detail. Very nice job of backlighting!
