    • It was a lucky mistake on my part. I was just starting to take photography seriously and never even considered my reflection. I couldn’t be standing in a better position. Thanks Klara.


  1. Thanks so much for featuring me on your blog! I’m really enjoying your photo challenge topics and other topics! Much appreciated. 🙂


  2. The cello shot is great. Lots of stuff going on, whether or not it was intentional. I don’t remember who said he’d rather be lucky than talented … some baseball player. He has a point. It certainly goes for photography. Some of my best shots were just lucky grabs 🙂 Great fun challenge!!


  3. Cee, you have always so interesting images …. I think I only have one that is related to music. Excellent gallery. My favorite is the violins. Have a great weekend.
