Brass band in festival traversing the village, of small square in small square, to give a morning concert to the inhabitants.

Brass band "Lous Porcs Negres" of Saint-Andre-of-Sangonis, Herault.

Saint-Jean-of-Buèges is a French commune, located in the department of Herault and the Languedoc-Roussillon area. Its inhabitants are called Saint-Jeannais.

"Saint-Jean-de-Buèges", authentic medieval village nested in a valley, dominated by the solid mass of "Séranne" has appeared in the history well before its castle. The "Château de Baulx" is dated from XIIème century. With bottom of valley, the abundant vegetation contrasts with the mountain arride which reaches 900 m with the "Roc Blanc". the village made up of generally high and piled up old houses, is bored narrow small squares, lanes or alleys in staircases, where often intense estival heat hesitates to penetrate. The "Buèges" small limpid river, resulting from a karstic resurgence near brings in summer the freshness and the decoration of an oasis, before going to throw itself in the hérault after some kilométres of semi course on the surface semi underground. After having lived mainly of the breeding of the worms with silk, the village with sudden the rural migration. Much of its houses became residences of holidays. Vines and olive groves make live the inhabitants of the vintage. The tourist activity constitutes a seasonal contribution. No one surge of mass. It is the field of the amateurs of nature, uneven and beautiful images.

Bonjour Joel
Il y a de la bonne ambiance,j'aime l'attitude du personnage à l'arrière plan à droite.
Du bel ouvrage.
Bonne journée.

Tres gaie photo.
Les homme se marrent bien.Ils aiment a jouer ensemble.
En plus, j'aime les couleurs de leurs chemises.
Une ambience tres agreable.
Merci et a la prochaine.

Salut Joel,
wonderful addition to the one from yesterday now having their faces - their fun - in the capture. Even the big drum is covering some of them we have three well presented and the best is the one at the right using his chance to raise the hand. Good light and colours, the framing also nice.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Nice daily life capture showing these musicians performing. Your composition is great showing the message on the bass drum as well as the musicians. The lighting and colors are fine with nice sharpness and detail.

bonjour joel
c'est celle-ci que je prefére des trois, là tu colles bien au sujet et on decouvre par la même occasion le nom de cette penã.


Salut Joel,
Il y a de la gaité sur cette photo avec l'attitude du musicien de droite, bien la grosse caisse en point fort ... et en photo on évite d'avoir les tympans qui sursautent à chaque boum !

Hello Joel,
Another excellent capture of this colourful brass band with a lovely joyful atmosphere. Very good colours and definition.

Hi Joel,
