Another shot of my friend Daniel, conducting l'Harmonie Municipale de Mitry-Mory in a Gala Concert. With Johnny Depp looking on, courtesy of some local art students.
Thanks for looking,

Thanks for noticing, Helen Wink
And thanks to everyone who has called in here this morning.
A brief update - we got our little exhibition set up at the library yesterday, just a few details to sort out this afternoon.
I am vaguely aware that I haven't cleaned the house for weeks, but it can wait a bit longer...

I am becoming aware that I can write in the dust too - but have been putting it off until the coughing stopped WinkWink
Hope all goes well with the exhibition

A great view point and use of negative space at the top of the image as the conductor is leaning forward and he is allowed space to rise into. - gary

Thanks for that Gary - I wanted the space of a square crop, it took several attempts to get it right!
Cheers everyone, it's nearly the weekend! Smile

Diagonals, format, pov and Johnny Depp - well composed and I'm glad in mono, or I think Johnny would have been overwhelming Wink

For me it's the fact that we don't see the faces of the main protagonists. It's just the face of that pirate who keeps us informed.

The lead violin waiting for the point to rejoin the music, love the monochrome here Moira, beautifully clean. Too much to hope that the music was "Pirates of Penzance" ?

Mick, I knew you would be the one to notice that...

Quote: Too much to hope that the music was "Pirates of Penzance" ?

No chance, Dougie. I've never come across any knowledge of G&S in France. On the other hand I've been taken to some very good 19thC French operettas that I'd never heard of...
Thanks to everyone who has called in here,
Moira

Well composed, I love the juxta-position between the two and see it as a significant connection
Once again your choice of monochrome is excellentGrin
