Cello

The cello is a beautiful instrument - not only in the sound it produces but also its graceful design. I have some bias here - I do own one and did study for a very short time. But just mentioning the instrument always seems to elicit the cliched response, "Oh, I just love the cello." Peter Lewy plays the streets regularly in New York, and these photos of his cello and performance are the results of my chance encounter with him again in the evening under the Washington Square arch. If you are interested in learning about the instrument, click here for an in-depth article. Peter is an accomplished professional - check out his website here. The cello is very close in range to the human voice - perhaps this is part of its appeal...

And let's not forget to give credit to the instrument - it's a photogenic natrual.

What brilliant photos & what diversity you convey Brian! I have come here today for the first time, this 5th anniversary day, because I can't get THAT day out of my mind. My post today deals with my response to my own trauma back then.
Expecting to find a related NYC post, it was the best serendipity to find what I found for yesterday - the cello and bow - and the recent posts. Thanks so much for this.

The cello encompasses all human emotions, from rage to calm. Beautiful.
