The Music Man




I am the Music Man
I come from down your way
And I can play

Music Man playing
and Hollyhocks dancing
in the wind

the Upper Belvedere Palaces

  1. Wunderbar. Sehr schon. It's funny that I am listening to Radio Paradise at work and they have just played Ultravox's 'Vienna'. No, seriously. They did :-).

    Many thanks for your kind comments on my blog. I love yours.

    Greetings from London.

  3. Lovely. I loved your pics of the little sparrow too. Imagine a sparrow as a dinner guest.

    Yes, that is what struck me too when I observed this scene! And he was really a really good player and when I noticed his handicap, the music all of a sudden sounded bittersweet.

  8. Hollihocks dancing in the wind. That is music in itself.
    I am a fan of the way you compose your posts.
    Perfection.

  11. This guy looks Romanian. I can hear the music as I look at the photo.

    I've been meaning to ask you, what kind of camera are you using for your photos?

    Thanks for your update on my blog. I was really sorry to hear how things are at the Shakespeare Bookshop. I can't believe people nnnnnnnnnnnnnn(oops that was the cat) behave that way.

  12. I adore hollyhocks. Can't wait until next spring when I can plant some.

    Beautiful, as always, Merisi!

  13. I am so sorry I haven't commented in a while...I have been traveling and enjoying our unusual warm autumn here in Upper Michigan for the past few weeks. I am wayyyy behind in reading my fav blogs and commenting and I haven't been able to post on my own blog as often as usual.
    But I am slowly catching up. I have read your past two weeks blogs tonight and have loved the images,all of them! Especially the sparrow. It was adorable.

  16. Oh! I'd love to pause in the street for a moment and enjoy the music.

    Lovely flower,
    Paz
