simply music


blue skies...garden shadows
music and trees

trees branches curved by time
air guitar too shadow in the side

smooth quiet reflections
fingers and strings

music and garden
...
a simple part of my day
garden song

I can just imagine the sound resonating through the beautiful garden - just love the first photo - it reflects the environment almost like a mirror.

on these simple days, I sit back and take a deep breath and play along with christina....

what a great party, huh ?

Mrs. E said...

I swear if you can play guitar as well as you take photos and write- I may have to hate you, Elk! There should be enough talent to go around for the rest of us! : )

Liss said...

I was hoping you would feature your guitar here. What I love is that you make it seem really SIMPLE to put beautiful words to matching picture together.

Tracy said...

How have I missed that you are a musician? I must've been absent a couple of days. :) Branches curved by time is an inspired line - I can feel the breezes and hear the music.

music and gardens - too too perfect

I love the photos

I was out for a walk on July 4th and heard the sound of a guitar and singing in the distance. I followed the sound and found a man on his balcony, singing and playing in the sun. I don't think he heard my clapping (it's hard to clap loudly) but I was so happy I heard it.

Caroline said...

Love acoustic guitar! And what better than to listen to that while sitting in your garden ***sigh***

stephanie said...

Great photos! Music outside. Doesn't get much better than that.

Thanks for sharing!

this last photo is exquisite! i love the way the guitar is slightly in the shadows. really beautiful, elk.

Esther said...

Beautiful and instantly restful set of pictures. Lovely.

Jac said...

Oh so lovely Elk. I love the sound of acoustic guitar and it's always especially lovely when you hear it outside. There is someone who lives in a house at the bottom of my garden and sometimes I can hear a guitar being played outside in the sun - lovely. :)

Sarah said...
