The Musical Chandelier

This quirky and unusual chandelier hangs in the foyer of a hotel in Toulouse.

The guitar

Cee’s theme for this week’s Black & White Challenge is anything to do with music.

My grandson is, though I say so myself, a very talented guitarist and this image is a detail of his electric guitar – or, more accurately, one of his electric guitars.

52 Week Smartphone Challenge: 45 Musical

‘Musical’ is the theme for Week 45 of the Smartphone Challenge, so here is a detail from the electric keyboard that our grandsons use when they are staying with us:

As it happens, the theme for Cee’s Black & White Challenge this week is ‘Music’, so this post will apply for that too.

Who says men can’t multi-task?

My grandson picks out a tune (kind of…) on the new toy keyboard that he’s just got for Christmas.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy Place

“If you get confused, listen to the music play”

     – Grateful Dead: ‘Franklin’s Tower’

This week’s Photo Challenge wants to know “Where do you go when you need to think? What do you do when you need to restore yourself, to ready yourself to take on the coming week with energy and verve? How do you get your sense of humor back? How do you recharge your groove?”

That’s an easy one for me. I just put in my noise-cancelling earphones and choose something from here. Or maybe from the 900 or so concert downloads that I’ve accumulated over the almost twenty five years since the bus came by and I got on.
