Little pleasures

Before the temperature gets in the 'teens again...
A few minutes outside to enjoy a little music .

Avant que les temperatures retombent au dessous de zero,
Quelques minutes en plein air pour gouter un des petits plaisirs de la vie.

I believe these are the Pipes of Pan. Not sure. Love the photographs - especially the guy looking on and obviously so enjoying the music.

Marie-Noyale, I left two responses on Menton DP explaining how to do the Focal B and W. (ie where the small piece of food was in colour) It's so simple with Picasa which is a free download for PC or Mac.

Wow! Increadible pictures, especially the second one!

The expression of the onlooker is captured brilliantly!

je suis a 100% d'accord avec Rakesh (comme quoi je comprends un ou deux mots d'anglais ;o)) ), je suis fan de la 2eme, on sent son bonheur d'ecouter ce concert improvisé ET EN PLUS ON L'ENVIE

Pareil que Rakesh et Olivier...
Oui, j'ai entendu parler d'un arrivage glacé en provenance d'Alaska...Brr!

J'aime bien la flûte de pan.
Moi aussi j'aime beaucoup la seconde photo. Le spectateur a l'air de vraiment prendre du plaisir à écouter ce petit concert.

I of course bought one of these flutes when I was in Peru (like I bought a bagpipe when I was in Scotland...) and optimistically thought it would not be too difficult to learn. I can now tell you that it's not that easy!

Je suis d'accord avec les commentaires concernant surtout la deuxième photo!!

il m'est venu un doute : à quel il sourit le spectateur, au musicien ou… au photographe ?

Un superbe reportage en deux photo et avec la musique !

Du très grand !!

Un très joli travail sur la mise au point, Marie Noyale, qui permet le va et vient de l'un à l'autre.
Froid et on ne sort pas ? Je dirais que j'ai plus froid depuis qu'il pleut. Je ne ressentais pas le froid sec de ces derniers jours. La neige croquante ne glissait pas et n'a pas gêné la circulation. Depuis le redoux il y a du verglas !

Very well composed photos! All these greys make a wonderful contrast with the redish brown in the background.

Love your art! Every photo is such a lovely surprise!

That's nice ... two different focus ! good capture !

Very nice photos. I also believe those are pan pipes that he is playing; they have a nice haunting quality to them.

Moi aussi - I agree with the other comments...I love the way you captured the man leaning & looking on, but what makes it special is the combination of the musician and the listener.

excellent captures!

how strange-- My computer hasn't shown your 2009 posts! until just now, it blinked and they all showed up!!!

Doesn't it stir your heart to see and hear people on the street creating such sweet music. The music is perfect for this, as is the gentleman's portrait.

Il y a aussi..There is also...
