All the fighting, the stress, the drama
To much to handle and to much to deal with
I go to my room and shut the door
Lay on the bed and put in my headphones
Turn on the music and lay back to relax
Go to my own little place to forget everything
The fighting, the stress and the drama
All of it goes away thanks to the music
Music is my escape of reality
Music is my escape to everything
It helps me relax and forget
That is my escape
What is yours?
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.
Not confined to music released in 2008, but including music I returned to again and again in 2008. [Albums in bold, songs in italics; asterisks for the best of the best]

Esta foto tirei ontem no Churrasco entre amigos do SulFotoclube (www.sulfotoclube.net). Enquanto o meu colega brincava com o violão, eu brincava com a câmera e testava algumas situações de flash e composição.
Do you want to read the background story?
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
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.

All other images and textures used are my own.
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!
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.
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.
