Oct 08, 2016 – [Saturday] Is this what you call art? – Tin Bin Man
Glasgow, Scotland, taken on July 30, 2016
The Tin Bin Man is becoming (or has become?) somewhat of a Glaswegian legend. He’s been spotted in various areas around the city centre, and I saw him a few months in front of the Argyle Street mural. His enthusiasm certainly put a big smile on my face. Rock on, buddy!
Aug 14, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Fun!
Geneva, Switzerland, taken on March 23, 2013
One of the reasons I like watching street artists perform because often they look like they’re having a lot of fun. Take this group of medical students from Porto, for example. Taking some time off from saving lives and performing to earn some extra cash for their expensive tuition (why they were in Geneva I had no clue), they formed a nice little orchestra and amused many passersby, including our group. Some talent they have – we certainly had fun watching them!

Last year I had the excellent opportunity of listening to Haydn’s “The Creation”, one of the most well-known musical masterpieces in history. The instrumentation, the choir, and the solo vocals were impeccable. Let the harmony fill the air!
Jan 28, 2016 – [Thursday] #tbt: Clarinet player
Toronto, Canada, taken on December 15, 2005
A #tbt photo of my sister in her 4th grade (or was it 5th?) band as a clarinet player. Chubby and adorable ^_^ I should get her a clarinet someday – now that she’s almost 20, she can certainly pick it up again and maybe someday we’ll have that Super Mario duet that I had been dreaming of…
