The challenge this week is to come up with something about ‘humanity’, which is very broad and open to interpretation. Thirdeyemom, who came up with the challenge, shared a gallery of photos of people from various countries and cultures from her travels. I decided to go with humanity’s love of music, and stories in the form of songs.
I trawled through all my files to choose these pics – all of occasions where people gathered in the open air to enjoy music together. Except for the busker, who took the music to the people, and hoped that some of them would appreciate his efforts, and drop a contribution into his guitar case. The two shots from Seattle show an elderly and very colourful old man who came supplied with pieces of bright sheer fabrics, and the fellow members of the audience he cajoled to dance and twirl with them. They didn’t last long though – too self-conscious!
