Congratulations Maureen and Raven, thank you marie for the third place and for running the challenge.
Maureen that is a colorful picture of the flamingos with a great detail in the beak vibrations passed to the water.
Jim (Raven), the large headphones and speakers in wooden boxes are the way to listen musical vibrations.
On a side note, I can not understand how we dare to replace that nice audio equipment with the tiny flat speakers that sounds like tin hit by a hammer that are used in the iPhones, iPads and the like. Very nice colors and textures in your picture.
I used my picture before to talk about Chinese lamps and dragons with marie that posted a painted Chinese lamp in Challenge #314 - Street lanterns
My photo was taken when my son Rafa received his violin, an instrument built by a luthier of a small city in the south of Ecuador. It was tested and recommended by Tadashi Maeda, a good Japanese violinist and composer that lives here. (Not to be confused with Rear admiral Tadashi Maeda of the Japanese Imperial Navy )
A difficult theme, marie. It was hard to find an interpretation of it to choose a picture. It was interesting to see the other clever interpretations in this challenge. A nice contest!
