I allways loved music specially this fabulous instrument a "friend of mine" used to play "several" years ago...more than 35
The blurred face is not PS is really a sudden felt movement when he was playing a Tango...( I do it :)...) with a "Honher" one of the most famous acordeons in the world,, I still have this one wich model is "Verdi I M"
happy Easter to all ...

Ola Mr. Camposinhos!
This old photo which is 8 years older than me is just great! Great with its close up view, great with its wonderful nosthalgia and especially great with the expression on your friend's blurred face. He looks as if playing his melodies in ecstasy. Loved it!
Compliments and regards,

I regret the blurr on the face of your friend, but this old picture has the same authenticity as your previous one. And the sharpness of the accordeon is perfect.
All the best,

Esta foto aumentou minha saudade. Minha tia tocava acordeom para mim quando pequena, era completamente apaixonada por este instrumento! A foto e uma viagem no tempo. Adoro o movimento o séia, tudo enfim. Obrigado por partilhar-la.
Abracos e boa Pascoa,

Olá Rui, chego aqui pelo comentário precedente e não posso deixar de pensar a que ponto esta imagem fica bem além de considerações técnicas. Parece uma fracção de memória, um pensamento reproduzido em película que nos vem dos verdes anos. Bastar fechar os olhos e deixar os sentidos vogar ao ritmo da musica.

71 was a great year... At least for me...although I was certainly a few years younger than the accordonist, though I remember everything.
I suddenly realized : Mozambique! Hell, how life could have been sweet in Mozambique in 71... it's hard to imagine, it could have been Papua New Guinea. You know the famous philosopher Barthes says the essence of a photo is its relationship to something that happened, he calls it the "this was" factor. "This was" screams this photo.
What prompted me to open it was the kind of saudade oozing from the thumbnail, the soft ivory tones and a silent melody. I wasn't really thinking about tango but probably a softer more plaintive tune.
Anyway this is a great image in its own, flying high above the sea of photos that floods the site. Probably a too personnal one, not enough colors and flowers for TrekEarth, though I hope there will be many many criticers after me.

What a good idea to dig into your archives and share some of your old favourites with us. The moment and expression has been captured well.

Bonita fotografia, com um rebuscado e interessante conjunto. A idéia de movimento ficou bastante boa. A opção pela cor, idem.

Excellente image rétro !
J’aime beaucoup le léger flou au niveau du visage de l’accordéoniste !
Joyeuses fêtes de Pâques,

I watched few photos from mozambique yesterday and this one realy attracted my attention. For some reason i couldn't coment on this photo so i'll try to do it now. It is stunning photo of musican deeply concentrated in his music, the age of this photo is impresive too. Many thanks for sharing and i'd also like to thank you for generous critique on my photo from vilankulo in mozambiue.
With best regards,

1971 Mozambique - a beautiful photograph which encapsulates a past era. The blurred face and the tight focus on the accordian is fantastic: ¿the musicians move on, but the music itself is always there? Which in terms of 70s Southern Africa is a very relevant idea to present in a photograph. Nice one, I am very impressed.
