Waou! tout ceux qui sont passé par le pont Charles ont du voir cet orchestre, je les ai vu moi aussi au 2 occasion que j'ai eu d'aller à Prague. Ils sont depuis on ne sait quand, on sait pas qu'on ils s'arrêtent, bref des monuments de prague!
Ta photo d'eux le montre bien, ils jouent même en hiver!!!
sorry, but i can't speak very well english...

Hi wilson, the picture displays a couple of men having fun, and indeed it seems to be pretty cold, and playing with gloves must not be easy, even when the fingers are out.
The picture could be a bit sharper though.

Le choix du noir et blanc pour cette image me semble bon ! Dommage que l'ensemble soit un peu flou et que le tout ne soit pas horizontal.

You have a very good street shot. Needs a little ccw rotation but nevertheless its a good shot.

Hi Wilson, welcome to TE. Good shot of this group, and a jolly atmosphere, which is har dto get there in the summe when its hard to move for tourists. Wise decision, I think December and January are the best months for Prague.

Oh it's seems to be cold to play music. But jazz can warm atmosphere and I've no doubt that they didn't freeze.
Nice composition in BW

Good catch-the-moment. The B&W gives it an old style that adds a value to the photo.

Those are some dedicated musicians; It must be very diifcult to play an instrument with gloves. Your photo captures well the enthusiam that makes it worth listening to live music. This is my first visit to your site and I'm impressed by the many places you've travelled.

Very well composed shot here. Nice the B&W option. A good POV to show this Jazz band.

Hi Wilson - this does seem like a cold place, especially looking at the way the band is dressed, but they do seem to be enjoying themselves on the bridge! Good choice to use B&W for this one, it suits the environment.

Wonder how they plucked the strings and pressed the keys!
A good group photo in black and white giving it atmosphere

This is a nice and amusing image, also good to put into my theme about the saxophones, thanks and compliments, a good and interesting post as many others of your gallery.

Very interesting array of instruments that must have produced an unusual sound. You have caught their pride and joy to be able to perform despite the frosty temperature.
The banjo player seems to be bursting with joyous song.

a daily scene from the Charles bridge in Prague, that I have visited three years ago.Nice composition in BW,with interesting light and contrast.Well done.

Great shot, Wilson, you've caught these guys in full swing. One can almost feel the energy here. The bridge makes a great stage for them, and the fine old buildings a great backdrop. Good work! Regards,

Hi Wilson, an marvelous older post of yours that slipped my attention. I was in Prague a long time ago and was very impressed with the hight quality of their musicians. I almsot cannot believe that these guys are really there in the middle of the winter playing jazz. I even see a bhutan bottle in the fg. Is that for any heating device in the bg. I like the B&W and the tilted aspect. It gives an artistic twist.

J’aime beaucoup les musiciens que l’on rencontre dans les rues. C’est toujours très agréable de les écouter un moment.
Très bonne ambiance dans cette image et excellent choix du B&W !
Amicalement et au plaisir,
