I have been reading the Long Beach Mysteries by Tyler Dilts in which a very valuable Deering Banjo is described in detail so this morning perusing my photos from yesterday for something to post for macro photography, my jaw dropped when I zoomed in on the name of this banjo.  I would have never noticed it if I hadn’t been for Sally D’s creativity challenge to focus on everyday objects. The Banjo and accordion were part of a Marching band called the Hub-Bub Club and I use to live in Long Beach, CA. synchronicity is alive and well!

One more image more Street then Macro to give you an idea of the scope of the band:

Love to hear your comments about my photos with my little iPhone 5s.

Also what do you think of the new theme?

  1. You’ve found a good example of intriguing design elements of everyday objects: the banjo is such a terrific musical instrument with features that makers can arrange and rearrange. The basic design is engaging, and the added ones grab one’s attention. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • To get such a capture during a swirling hub-bub says a lot about just how fast the iPhone is! No zoning or cropping on image #1. May make #2 into a postcard for my music friends.
      Thank you for the well articulated comment,
      Happy June

  3. Thanks for the author tip. I read a lot of mysteries and it is good to find a new author. How did you do the half black and white, half color photo?

      • I am currently re-reading a Heinlein (not a mystery) – The cat who walked through walls. My current mystery writer favorites are Kerry Greenwood (Phryne Fisher), Jacqueline Winspear (Maisie Dobbs), and Alan Bradley (Flavia de Luce) – and, of course, Stephanie Plum!

    • I got the Black and white mix from the Phototoaster app in a preset called Color Burst, You can move your finger around to where you want the color. I think other apps have color burst.
      Do you use a smart phone for photography?
