In the same rehearsal as my last post Jacqui & Matthew, the horn players who founded the orchestra a few years ago, plus a selection of violins concentrate on a tricky bit...

This shot illustrates the wide age range of these musicians, from about 13 to 70+, asthey rehearse "Valse Triste" bySibelius.

In the 1/3s of the exposure, myold friend Eunice and the 1st violinist on her right haven't moved at all, but my 16-year-old son and his even younger colleague on the left have fidgeted in this pizzicato passage.We couldestimate the speed of Mark the conductor'sbeatas well.

It's seemed very quiet across the Atlantic lately. I trust you're all having a Happy Thanksgiving.

Two more fine photos of the orchestra and church. Do you have more photos of the church? If so, how about posting some of them in the Architectural forum and letting us know they are there.

Yes, I have quite a few taken in August. I'll let you know. I struggled to make a striking spiky 'W' out of the top of the tower for 'letters' but failed to find a viewpoint with correct lighting where I wouldn't get run over by traffic.

Here's something to be going on with...

Alan,

That first shot grabbed my attention immediately. I guess it's the compbination of the players as well as the church setting. Wonderful job in both cases.

Aloha and thanks for sharing. Yes there was a reduction in most non-eating activities. The day after Thanksgiving is usually reserved for shopping for Christmas gifts.

Both are nice shots - I'd like to see more of the church too.

I like the vantage point in the second shot, it's not something you see unless you're on stage too.
