Greece in Mono 6

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your much treasured comments, votes, mod and awards on my previous upload, very much appreciated. Smile

Today's lead image is quite possibly the forerunner of the modern day bag pipes, which, we all know, did not originate in Scotland. Wink
I thought the sepia toning suited the image which I took down on the Mykonos harbour as he played and laughed among the customer's in the taverna's, hoping to raise a few euro's.
V1, a sales person in one of the many clothes shops in Mykonos town.
V2. Julie's birthday cake.

Well, it's Julie's 60th birthday today. Needles to say, all celebration's have been cancelled so it's a day of eating cake and drinking bubbly. As soon as the virus has gone, I think we will all need to change of wardrobe. Smile

All the best to all, take care and stay safe,

The celebrations that remain seem pretty worthwhile, John... Happy Birthday to Julie!

The version offers an interesting choice: move round a little, so the sun's behind her and use a reflector or half-power fill flash, or go for the graphic look...

Thank you for your good wishes, John, i'll pass them on to Julie.
And for the advice also. But unfortunately, street portrait's are taken in a matter of seconds and without a great deal of thought. However, I will consider options next time out. Whenever that may be.Smile

Most definitely it is a bagpipe, John; the bag started off as half a goat, to judge by the shape, the chanter (in the piper's hands) being made from one of its horns.
A good study of the man and his instrument!

What he's carrying on his left shoulder - that looks like a water canister we are used to seeing in old western films. Presumably, being Greece, it is full of Ouzo?Wink

Hope you are spoiling Ju's rotten all day!
