The Band.

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 6 April 2013 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

First of all thank you to all of those who have been sticking by me this past couple of months, it has not been easy finding time to post a daily picture but your thoughts and good wishes for my wife have helped me to sustain some sort of output. She is now in the midst of a second series of radio therapy at Newcastle's Freeman Hospital and, although her cancer is still terminal, she is feeling much happier in herself and can, for now, swallow and eat. I am sorry that for the moment I cannot make time to visit and comment on your pages, but I'm sure I will return sometime in the future.

I did manage to take a few pictures over the past week, none of which I would call truly remarkable, but at least they document some of the things happening in my life here in South Shields.

Just a little detail shot as one of the bands rested their instruments in South Shields Market Place at the beginning of the Good Friday service.

An impressive visual Curly... the arrangement of the instruments is perfect! The grays, blacks, gold and silvery tones with the white drum in the center really makes it strong... and the processing is superb!
