Pastimes

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #97 – Pastimes

Where to begin. Do I have more than one pastime? That is an easy one to answer, yes.

Did you know I like to photograph nature? Pop “nature” into the search box on my page and maybe you’ll find a few pictures.

Did you know I like to get into the garden? Try garden and see what comes up.

Did you know I enjoy travelling? Travel in the search box may surprise.

Did you know I like cooking? If you search recipe, try one of mine.

Besides all of these, I really enjoy music. As a lot of my posts contain a song which I think is relevant to the theme of the post, a song could be included. A search will bring up too many posts to even think about. I listen to music while writing, cooking or mucking about with my photos. This is playing now

Here is few photos of my music gleaned from older posts

  1. Love the peek into your life Brian. Iโ€™m a music lover as well although no longer have my albums. I used my college graduation money to buy a Martin guitar for my then-fiancรฉ. My grandmother almost killed me LOL!

  2. I love the video montage that accompanies this song. Thanks for sharing it. I still have all my old LP’s and 45’s and cassettes. Unfortunately no way to play them. Do you have Her Satanic Majesty’s Request?

    1. I can still play mine, I forgot the four drawers of cassettes ๐Ÿ™‚ My copy of Her Satanic Majestyโ€™s Request is the one with the original with the hologram/3D image on the cover

      1. I also have the white album with half of the cover peeled off because there was a rumor that underneath was a photo of them all in the nude that had been banned–thus the white cover. Ha!

  3. Splendid images for the challenge! I’m glad to see the Rolling Stones well-represented on the shelf. They were always my favorites when I was a teenager. I remember seeing them play at our local dance hall before they were famous. I was the only one standing there watching them and I recall going home and telling my parents that I had just seen a great band that I thought would really be going places. You have a nice collection of guitars too. Thank you so much for participating in the challenge.

    1. I am a Rolling Stones nut. Have all their LP’s on vinyl as well a s bootlegs, most of the 45’s all the CD’s released plus the limited editions. Books, videos…..so much. Have only seen the once. Glad it was the right thing for your theme Sue โค

      1. Absolutely! Just a couple of quick Stones anecdotes; Even my old dad liked them although he was typically a Dixieland jazz fan but I remember my uncle coming over from New Zealand for a visit and almost bursting a blood vessel when he saw them on tv as he thought they were disgusting. Mick Jagger used to shop for fish where my ex worked in London. I remember him telling me how he saw Mick wearing a fur coat in there once. Not something you saw men doing too much in those days.

      2. That’s great. My youngest daughter “discovered” the Stones probably with my playing them a bit in the car and at home. One of her bedroom walls was a shrine to Keef ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      3. I’ve seen the Stones twice, once in Manchester, and once in Johannesburg.
        I have a vinyl bootleg of their Nicaragua benefit concert at the LA Forum!

        Is that an Epiphone guitar? And a Fender amp as well?

  4. I don’t know what happened to my old LP’s and 45’s. I left them behind when I moved from New Jersey to here in Florida. Parents had a big yard sale when they moved, so someone out there is the proud owner of a lot of good music.

  5. I sold most of my albums and CDs when I moved to Hawaii, though I still have the digital versions. Music is a good pastime though. I think it’s the most universal language – don’t have to understand the words to appreciate it.

  6. enjoyed seeing your geetars and gear!
    and I enjoyed half the song as I paused in the post – and it was enjoyable to move through the post with the song and then have th inside look into the CD’s and records and books and then the guitars – ๐Ÿ™‚
