Ah, nice photo bahadir. It reminds me when I was a child and didnt want to play the violoncello. So I took piano instead. Memories.

Well, Bahadir, dear friend... what a handsome son you have.

But don't call him: " little boy" as Boğaçhan seems quite a grown up young man already!! :O I remember seeing some photos of him you posted earlier! Children do grow up so quickly to become "young adults".

Please pass on my congratulations and best wishes to him... playing a musical instrument is a valuable opportunity (many children never have this luxury) to develop and appreciate the art. I never played any stringed instrument... however I can play the organ, keyboard and recorder; and I enjoy singing and have been in a number of choirs and informal bands.

Regards

Paul

edit... sorry forgot to actually comment on the PHOTO itself. Good composition, and not a forced smile help it to be a great family capture. Good exposure too. I would have definitely tried to also include the bottom tip of the 'cello though.

Interesting to see his right foot with toes curled that way. Was he a bit nervous (otherwise he doesn't give any indication of nerves, as I said natural smile?)

The two chairs either side give a good "balance" to the photo (though the doorway is a bit distracting in the background). A good photo.

Nice furniture, those two chairs I mean, looking very nicely decorated!! Paul

Thanks for the encouragement for both the father and the son : )

As for Bach, it will take some years I suppose! Oh, what a dream for a Bach admirer

So glad to hear you agreeon this great suggestion. Thank you !

Dear Paul,

You know they saykids remain their parents' babies always:-)

Reading your comments on the photograph, once again, I am amazed by your great observation skills, especially about the curled toes! Maybe it was because he was taking his first private lesson : ) Btw, I must confess that neat house is the instructor's house. Look at the protective soft leg tips ofarmchairs so as tho prevent them from scratching the polished parquet floor !!:-) I should also say that Iactually included the bottom tip of the violoncello while shooting but cropped it when posting with some hesitationas youhave pointed out!

Thank you again for this great feedback!

Occasionally it can prove useful photographically too...

My amateur orchestral violin playing, which brought my expert clarinetist wife to me, and led to my talented musical children, is over due to finger disability. But I still find much joy in their performances. My wife is teaching herself the cello, on my elderly family cello. She's a grown-up with a small (3/4) instrument, and not a small person with a big one. She plays in a school orchestra with my violinist son (see link) as they're short of cellos.

I myself have reverted to bad amateur singing, which is not so photogenic.
