I turned my golden flute upside down. Here the flute tones would have to come out. I captured in the garden, the sun rays made same nicely reflections inside.

Vanessa's painterly style brings to mind the works of Rembrandt, El Greco or Anthony van Dyck with her use of dark and golden tones and heavy textures. It is a pleasure to feature her work here

From Wikipedia:


The cathedral's pipe organ which was built by T. C. Lewis and Co of Brixton, England. Over six and half thousand pounds were spent on its construction, shipping and installation before it was played at the cathedral's opening in 1891. Various modifications and maintenance works have been carried out since then, culminating in a $726,000 restoration which was completed in 1990 with the help of a National Trust appeal. In its restored state the organ has four manuals with 44 stops and pedals with nine stops, all with electro-pneumatic action. It is housed in the cathedral's south transept behind newly-stencilled facade pipes.


Here's a link to download an MP3 of JS Bach - Sinfonia to Cantata 29 (arr Gehring) - played by David Ratnanayagam on the St Paul's Cathedral organ.

Member's choice theme "Musical Instrument"


"Oh this is easy!", I thought. "Just take a decent capture of your violin from an interesting angle, it's a snap", I thought. I ended up with almost 200 captures and a whopping folder size of 6,3 GB. Well.

I should know by now that whenever a theme seems to be an easy one, it isn't. Seriously, are MM themes ever easy ;-) ? So this is not my violin, but piano strings. When I opened the piano I saw those rather attractive, dusty spider silk threads hanging above the strings. I wonder what they would sound like. Maybe a very high, wispy sound...

Lady with violin

Textures by SkeletalMess & H.Adams


An old friend, my violin,

Still lies within it's case,

And at times I take it out

To play and reminisce.

The joy of life it brought to me

As I picked up that precious bow,

And o'er the strings did play the songs,

That were the best to know.

My problems seemed to dwindle,

My thoughts went high above,

When the music flowed so gently,

In tender tonelike love.

There's nothing else can take it's place,

The music of this world,

To bring that special joy of life,

To unloose and to unfurl.

*The Hypothetical Awards’ 5th ANNUAL MUSIC CHALLENGE

Editing with Adobe Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CS6

Whenever I use my guitar for an image, I tend to get sentimental. My poor baby has had some use. If you look, you'll see the sound hole isn't so round any more. The wood on the right side has worn down to the plastic ring from constant strumming. I'm a bit heavy handed on the up tempo tunes. :) I'll tend to play high on the neck, thus missing the pick guard and wearing a near hole in the top. The bridge has cracked and been repaired and frets replaced through the years. It was dropped and the top split away from the sides. It was repaired. The wood has been cured with tequila, smoke, beer, sweat and tears. A lot of time, love and memories are associated with this piece of wood. And it's never sounded better!


Today I got to take photo's for a musician. She plays an instrument we call 'hoorn' in Dutch and I am not sure whether to translate it as horn or clarion or bugle (I know what we call 'bugel' is not the same as a 'hoorn'... ).

I never really take pictures of other subjects that people or animals so here I took advantage of having such a beautiful instrument nearby (not at hand - I did not dare touch it and had her move it the way I wanted or position it where I wanted as I was so afraid to break something).

I forced myself to really look at the instrument and take a picture that was not just an image of the total instrument.

An idea i ve had for a while now just getting around to doing it!


The Alan Parsons Project "Old And Wise"


As far as my eyes can see

There are shadows approaching me

And to those I left behind

I wanted you to know

You've always shared my deepest thoughts

You follow where I go



And oh when I'm old and wise

Bitter words mean little to me

Autumn winds will blow right through me

And someday in the mist of time

When they asked me if I knew you

I'd smile and say you were a friend of mine

And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes

Oh when I'm old and wise


As far as my eyes can see

There are shadows surrounding me

And to those I leave behind

I want you all to know

You've always shared my darkest hours

I'll miss you when I go



And oh, when I'm old and wise

Heavy words that tossed and blew me

Like autumn winds will blow right through me

And someday in the mist of time

When they ask you if you knew me

Remember that you were a friend of mine

As the final curtain falls before my eyes

Oh when I'm old and wise


As far as my eyes can see


Listen to the whole album

Magical night, large on black



I do love to hear the sound of the piano at home especially if it's my husband playing it. This was his gift to me 2 years ago when I decided to take piano lessons. Never too late to learn something new, I guess. I took piano lessons for a very short time when I was little but never really took it seriously.


Sometimes it is better to escape with soft music to some place where the colors mix, and it seems that everything moves slowly in a space in which there is no beginning and no end and bad things disappear from the mind.
