p.1 #1 · #573 Irish Concertina


I have decided to change my entry. Got back from the beach to find out we had and Irish Festival going on in Raleigh, this weekend with live music, and dancing. Was able to find a real musical instrument after all.

Thanks for all the kind words on the original image. I have included the initial post here.

Best to all.

A very nice image and a good take on the theme. Also, thank you for the information about a creature I've never heard of or seen before.

Ed,

What a great Cicada

I was not able to make it to that restaurant in Blowing Rock you suggested, I did make it to owners brew pub, and if the food there was any indication I can see why you recommended it.

Since there are no human musical instruments around the house, thought I'd use a different twist on this week's assignment.

Beginning in August, cicadas begin the ritual of announcing the nearing of our fall season. Here is an excerpt about this musical instrument of nature taken from Wikipedia:

"The male cicada has loud noisemakers called "tymbals" on the sides of the abdominal base.

Thanks for the feedback, Greg. Not sure which I like best. Chickened out on the cicada. Thought a more conventional instrument might work better.

I thought your Cicadae was a nice departure for the WA but both are nice.
