Playing with Dark Light


Today I had to decide whether to post a picture with "dark' as its theme for Shutterday Saturday or "play" for Unique's Photo Challenge and maintain the integrity of using pictures showing Bend, Oregon. As I strolled the streets of downtown today, a band of "Goth" musicians were standing in the alley playing and singing especially funny and critical anti-establishment songs. I loved their vitality, creativity and also their desire through music to make a difference. Dark clothing, and dark thoughts are brought to light through bright sound and lovely colored instruments. Here hard work and enthusiastic play generated positive energy for all those who played and those who listened. Can you hear the sound?

Anytime youthful energy is shown through music it has to be for the good. Well they don't look 'too' goth and I think---yes I do hear them. I like the barefoot boy with the washboard. MB

I love this! As you'll soon see, I had a totally different cello experience in Astoria last night.

Hmmm...Goth means what? There appear to be a variety of interpretations...

Evidently, you thought their music was good...

I guess I'm still stuck on Sinatra...
