The theme for the October 2019 photo competition is: "Musical instruments, buskers and travel related playing of music."
In a line of text please add location, date and why this for you is a travel music photo.
As usual, photos taken by you or by your travel companion (who must be named, nicknames accepted.)
One post per photo, three posts max per person. Do not delete or change photos once posted, you posted it, you stand by it, you have two more options.
The photo does not need to show the people by face but if it does, please make sure you have their permission to post the photo online or work the photo such that they can not be recognized from the photo, blocked out or blurred faces are acceptable, even when in the focus of the photo.
Keep it nice and non offensive.
Do not downvote, if you do not agree with a photo do leave a comment to it or post in the chat. Only upvotes count.
The photo may have been taken any time.
Photos can be posted in the whole month of October, we use UTC, just as the site. The winner will be announced if there is no tie at the end of the month, and the voting period may extend beyond the month.
If you want to have a say in the upcoming themes, add it to this list and/or come to the chat.
This is a little cheeky since this photo is a representation of musical instruments in the form of a cake at an Acord concert roughly a year or so ago rather than actual instruments and musicians. That said, it represents, in an ekphrastic manner, the spirit of musical performance. The concert was a creative contrast in writing and music, about the difference between drummers and musicians.
Taken 15-April-2017, in Den Bosch, the Netherlands.
At the time I asked for permission to take the photo but not to publish it. So I have blurred his face. (It would be hard to impossible for me to find him again to ask permission.)
With this instrument I do not have a name at all.
In this case the instruments is traveling, at its change point in Germany. It is called a guitar-lute or lute-guitar (I am not sure.) It has been in my house on display for 10 years before being stored for an other 20.
Photo taken by Ken, (a friend whom I traveled with.) I got permission to post this pic from the guy holding the instrument.
