I've been wondering how to use this trumpet playing busker photo and now I have a reason! Let the trumpets sound a fanfare because yesterday I was delighted to receive the "Blogging Friends Forever" award from Ken Mac. Many thanks to him.

Now it is my turn to give the award to other deserving bloggers following these rules:
1. Only five people are allowed.
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

After much consideration the awards go to

Birmingham Alabama Daily Photo (Virginia)

Around Roanoke - A Daily Photo (Tanya)

York Daily Photo (Ruby)

Dusty Lens (Dusty Lens)

Palos Verdes Daily Photo (Tash)

I know that not everyone likes passing awards on, and that's fine. Take some time to visit these worthy winners, especially if you've not been there before.

Nicely done. Image is perfectly suited. Well done award wise and your choices. Just be careful with awards. I no longer accept or give them as some conatin viruses and I had so many that it became ridiculous. c

Love the trumpet player. there is one occasionly in Oxford St. However he doesn't play very well. Hope your player made good music.

That's a fab picture. Now is the time to confess that I have a music degree from a million years ago, so I hope you will forgive my pedantry - he's actually playing what looks like a cornet, rather than a trumpet. They have the same fingering and range of notes, but the trumpet is longer and thinner, whereas this one is shorter and a bit fatter. The cornet's sound is softer - generally you will find a cornet played in brass bands rather than trumpets, which you find in orchestras.

Pedantry over - whatever, it's a great photo! And never let it be said that you never learn from daily photo blogs! :D I'm just glad to prove to the world that my degree wasn't a total waste of taxpayers' money ;)
