Cee invites us to listen to the music for this week’s Black & White Photo Challenge. I remember my uncle once saying to me many years ago, “How can anyone live in a world without music?” Good question! I know I couldn’t. Not that I can play any kind of musical instrument and I certainly couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket, as the saying goes, but I can appreciate listening to those who can.
The late Oliver Colbentson, onetime Concertmaster of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, showed a wonderful passion for his music. I always enjoyed going to the recitals that he gave later in his life and he graciously allowed me to take photos at one such performance.
A sing-song on one of the pirate ships for Halloween some years ago at Navy Pier in Chicago.
This gentleman kindly allowed me to take some shots as he prepared to play for the Orchid Festival at the Chicago Botanic Garden a couple of years ago. I think his name is David Chiriboga and he did a splendid job.
A guitarist with a slightly different style of music playing at the Farmers Market at Wheeler Historic Farm in Salt Lake County, Utah.
Another performer at the Farmers Market in Utah, this young man’s enthusiasm for his music seemed inexhaustible. He played for what seemed like hours. It was definitely different!
