Good Morning Everyone,

This photograph certainly makes the imagination kick into action!

As always, you will see a much bigger, clearer photograph here on Beta.

Who were these musicians and why did they look so exhausted!

Well, I wish I could inform you but it remains a mystery.

WE had been sailing the Moselle and stopped for a break ... I think it was Cochem. As we explored, a van arrived and these musicians descended. We thought we might be in for a musical treat so hung around.

Sadly, they just had beers and generally sunbathed before it was time for us to move on.
Maybe someone will recognise the costumes and be able to tell me more about this band that never played!!

Still, they couldn't have been better dressed for a colourful photograph!

Have a great day, Bev :-)

Hello Bev,
We usually hope for ladies in red to brighten our photos but these unexpected men in red do just as well. Unfortunately I have no idea who they were but I enjoy this bright and amusing photo just as much. The glimpse of attractive buildings behind their black van provides quite a nice background too.
Kind regards,

Witaj Bev!
A very nice scene from street.
Excellent frame and colors.
I like this daily life shot.
Well done.
Nice day.

A band that never played, I'd like this as a title... But, nicely taken the moment on a short stop-over in Cocham, Beverley - it sure looks as Cocham to my humble opinion. If not mistaken, the castlle should be far left to this place.Colorful dresses made this a more-vivid picture.
My best regards,

Bonjour, chère Bev,
Eh bien, privé de musique, uniquement le chant de la bière au fond des bois.
Peu importe, la couleur est là, et fait vivre cette composition.

Hello Bev,
Interesting daily life scene with a funny story attached to it. Maybe, if you were able to read what is written on their insignia, you would be a bit the wiser. As it is they seem to have gathered quite a crowd. Well framed and well realised.

Warm and sunny here today, maximum of 22. Have a good afternoon.

Hello Bev,

It see a normal team musicians, maybe an attraction in the area, or with the mobile home a tour through Germany.
Notwithstanding everything a professional with clothing of a big band.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect photographed.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Bonjour Beverly,

C'est toujours une situation intéressante lorsqu'il nous arrive quelque chose de semblable. On espère quelque chose qui n'arrivera pas et on reste autour juste au cas. Ils ont tout un beau camion de tournée.

Hello Bev,

good image of daily life, it is a good memory of that moment in spite of the band didn´t play, well seen and presented,

Best regards,


Hi Bev, very good photo of this interesting scene of daily life with the interesting musical band, very well captured in this interesting image, with good clarity, light, color and quality. A great work perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this interesting work.

Good night and happy rest of week.
All the best from the south of Spain.

Hi Bev
well, i certainly can't help you out, i have no idea who these people are! they've probably been playing for hours previously, and now they're tired.

but you know what interests me most??? the buildings in the bg look very charming, old time, and very photogenic. Even a couple of tall spires. Lets see more of that! haha.
sorry to hear they didn't play. cheers

Hello Beverley,
A great photo of this group of colourfully dressed musicians. They seem rather exhausted indeed, maybe they had been busking all day long. The light is fine and the town makes a great background.

Ciao cara Bev, nice scene with musician, lovely composition, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi, Bev.
Certainly their colorful costumes, they give a lot of chromatic to the image, but their van in front of the beautiful view of the town, is a pity but still the photo has its charm.
Sharpness, lighting, color, and the magnificent composition; Are all factors perfectly accomplished, in this beautiful image.
Well done. I like very much.
You have a good day.
Very best regards.

Hello Bev,

Their re coats contrast well with the blue tones of the sky and the seated man in a blue tshirt and their blue jeans to give a nice warm cold color contrast. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs!
