Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone, but not forgotten

Tonight I finished a very enjoyable course learning to play the bodhran, a traditional Irish drum.  The teacher was great, the other people in the group were fun and I had the best time these past few months, battering the skin once a week (plus practice at home of course ;) )  I will miss my tuesday evenings, only just gone but not likely to be forgotten.

2014 Photo Challenge : Still Life - Music

Really enjoyed the challenge this week, in fact I look forward to it every week.  This week it was music I have only one musical instrument in the house a bodhran, it has shamrocks on the skin which I wanted to show , and decided to use the sun to reflect the light, I also wanted to have it recognised so I placed it at an angle, and all in all was pleased with the result. 22 more words
