Music

The theme for Franks Tuesday Photo Challenge is Music

What a difficult challenge as I have had music in my life ever since I was born. There was always music playing in the house, whether it was vinyl records or my Mother playing piano. This has been the source of my inspiration as I have been playing guitar since I was about 12 or 13 I think with my best mate Greg, since passed. All through school with the mates in the music class, Steven and Martin playing when we could. Yep Rock ‘n’ Roll of course!! Then with my best mate Michael we would play all the time. Nowadays I just pick up one of guitars and as I live in the bush, can turn it up and belt out a tune or two, mainly Rolling Stones songs.

Here is my first electric guitar and the last one I bought.

The person I have had in my life since I was four, David, an artist, drew this poster for me when we were still in school. I found it a few years ago, had it framed and it now sits on my loungeroom wall with pride.

I took these photos a few moments ago but have a wealth of music to choose from. I have almost nine hundred CD’s and hundreds of vinyl records plus music book and magazines so I had to limit myself as you can well understand.

Rock on

Tuesdays Photo Challenge: RBG

What a photo challenge!!!! How many photos have Red, Green and Blue colours? I am sure I can find some as I enjoy taking photos of birds and many Australian birds are quite colourful.

But first the jumping castle at the markets certainly has the colours.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Curve Tuesdays of Texture

I have been a bit cheeky by incorporating two Photo Challenges into one blog. Often there is stuff with a delicious curve which has a bit of texture as well.
