The Fiddler



Today is Farmer's Market day. A few weeks ago I heard this quartet playing at the market and I could not help but take a photo of the violinist. Truth, I am a sucker for violin and cello music. If someone is playing I will stop in my tracks just to take it all in.

This is a wonderful portrait; reminds me of some of the old master painters!

Excellent portrait! The action can be felt in this shot and I can almost hear his music. Beautifully composed and captured, Randy.

Bises,

Love the colors and soft focus here. I'm a sucker for a cello too! One of my favorite pieces is "Adagio for Strings".

I too have this habit. I always stop when I come across any roadside musicians.

One such incident while strolling the streets of Asheville, NC.

You've certainly taken a very good photo of him, Randy. I love live music, of all sorts, but right this minute, I can't remember hearing many fiddles lately. They can make such wonderful melodies and also haunting sounds, too.

Great portrait, Randy!
