    Making music.

    Music is the theme. Instruments, musicians, bands, performences, even your CD collection if you like. Anything music-related.

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

    A collection of instruments we have around the home.

    From the top down:

    1. Violin that belonged to my grandfather, passed down through my father.
    2. My daughter's acoustic guitar
    3. My Electric guitar (I won this in a drawing at Mark Lindsay's now defunk restaurant, and it is signed by Mark.)
    4. My daughter's keyboard.
    6. My daughter's Hofner bass guitar.
    7. My daughter's electric guitar.
    8. My daughter's Rogue bass guitar.

    I'll have to gather up a menagerie of guitars and amps that I own. I have a hand-made dreadnaught from Augostino LoPrinzi, a beautiful little Taylor parlor guitar (cedar top, rosewood body), etc, including a hand-built boutique amp (serial #2) Turbo-Pup. It's a killer amp. I almost had Mark talked into making mine #1 and his #0, but his wife (a sweetheart in all other regards) insisted that his must be #1. There must be some way I can get her back.

    My husband makes music. He pretends he knows how to play ocarina.

    You have no idea how traumatic experience it was. She asked me - innocently - if I will pose. I agreed. She gave me dusted ocarina that lies somewhere in dark corner of our house, she forced me into ironed shirt, she powdered my nose, asked me to pretend I am playing and took zillions of pictures in two sessions on Sunday and one on Monday.

    I had no idea I love her that much :!!)

    I don't know... I can whip out guitar tunes with alacrity, but throw me a "sweet potato" and you'll be sorry.

    Hmm, perhaps I'll get a shot of the banjo, or else my mandolin, or an antique picolo saxophone I have. Or all three.

    Here we go, got my banjo, mandolin (bowlback circa 1880-1910 we think), my moms old classical guitar that I use to figure some stuff out (despite a missing string) and my piccolo saxophone, strange little instrument.

    Thanks brewnog. If i'd been willing to spend the time I'd have made it a little better using more natural light, but I wasn't gonna be able to do that tonight so I had to fire to it last night.
