Waiting for the Silence, the true Silence, peace of the senses.

That kind of pure, pristine Silence which can only be heard by being in sync with the world surrounding us, by understanding the Nature and living it in all its fullness.

When a subject is perfectly in place within its contest.

This is me;
this is my Music, my Photography.

The endless quest for the best sounding melody, the finest light, the perfect equilibrium between fiction and reality, abstract and concrete, told and untold.

"
Caught in space and time
Like a bird in a cage
Cruelly confined
In a passing matters state

You suddenly realize
That the wrong is the right
Daring the laws
Ready to put up a fight
But...

Love will drag your heart away
To a world where dreams are made
Can't hide away
When your helpless mind obeys

Together we wait in silence
Forever the fate is hungry for your soul
Together we wait in silence
Worth your while until you're gone
"
(Angra - Waiting Silence)

THANK YOU ALL for your comments :)

REALLY didn't expect neither the "1" and the "2" nor the "man out of place" comments, but they're part of the "game".

One of the inspirations I had for this picture came from the concept behind Sebastiao Salgado's "Genesis", the idea of men living in harmony with their primordial world; I tried to apply this concept to the idea of "uncontaminated" music.

True, there's an electronic keyboard, but I surely couldn't have brought an acoustic piano 90 miles from home with my city car ;)

Thanks again, I'll try to keep up the good work.

Cheers!

I'm honored by your interest and really glad you like this photograph.

It was heartfelt, indeed; I had the idea just before finishing reading the challenge description.

I don't have a website yet but I'll start building it ASAP, for now there are only a few Live Music galleries (one of my interesting is to photograph music), feel free to check them out :)
My website is in my profile 21.gif waitingsilence :)

I also made the soundtrack for 21.gif alexkc timelapse video Twofold Nature https://vimeo.com/105968201 !!

Cheers!

Looks like a beautiful place to be. A little background music here would be cool too.

Beautiful place to play. (The hills are alive with the sound of music)

Love the mood captured here - music and nature's majesty. One sees the majesty of the mountains and hears the music that will be carried by the winds to roam the hills and slopes of the mountainsides.

What a beautiful image. The person on the keyboard just seems out of place and is very distracting.

An interesting take on your username, I think. I'm guessing you're a landscape photographer who is also a musician!
