Musical instruments & Musicians 1

By saltireblue    
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.


Apologies to Moira, mrswoolybill, who voted on the first upload before I spotted a glaring error and took it down

Very nicely isolated against the sea of shiny sunny faces.
Edit - Fete worse than death. Groan...

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.

Some ready and waiting young faces. About to make some music, one with the shiny saxophone, lips ready to blow........Sandy

Striking, colourful image Malc; the shallow DOF works particularly well.
Great clarity on the focal point.. Shiny shiny, like the composition of the trio.. Great work

This is terrific Malc - the isntrument so clear and sharp and the boys OOF apart from just the lips of the player. Great work.
