Playing the fiddle

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 13 October 2015 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Yes I know it'S noT a fiddle but playing the cello doeSn'T work ! The young cellist is sat busking in a place called penniless porch near the cathedral in Well, it was built around 1460 and was named for beggars who used to ply their trade there, and to this day it's not unusual to find someone busking in there. Happy ST

Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

The cello can carry wonderfully in the right open air place . . and I like the history context here, too.
