A short series to follow, all focused on musical instruments and the people who blow or bang them. All taken at our local village fete last weekend.
The saxophone is the first featured.

I will enable mods on all images, so feel free to join in and have a photographic jam sessionGrin

Thanks for your recent comments, all are appreciated.

Very nicely isolated against the sea of shiny sunny faces.

A baritone sax, my favourite of the breed. Vastly preferable to disco music even in young hands.
Well-isolated, well composed (the diagonal . . .) and gleaming attractively.

Bill

Striking, colourful image Malc; the shallow DOF works particularly well.
