I love this shot. I play this same kind of drum...West African Djembe. Very cool-and see how happy playing the drum makes one?

This doesn't look like an underground, it's so light! Wonderful portrait!

Great capture as always, JM! Love the drums -- my oldest son is a drummer. Glad you were able to fix your problem with loading -- I had the same problem and managed to fix it, too. Hope your week is going well!

Either he's happy enjoying his own music or happy 'cause you took the pic! :)
God bless you!

What a great capture, he has an amazing smile.

Gine said...

Avec son sourire, il attire la sympathie d'office ! S'il joue aussi bien que ses mains semblent le suggérer ...

Jarart said...

Very cool! I have heard that playing the drums is good for the soul. Judging by that smile, I would say that is true.

A great portrait , full of joy ;)

Gorgeous portrait, Jose. Lovely use of the graffiti. Love his hat!

Now to the djembe. What are those two aluminium flaps? All the african djembe drums I see here in Australia, I have never seen flaps like this. I tried a term of learning the djembe drum but the neuopathy in my fingers just went beserk. Such a happy activity, though.

He looks to be a happy man; hope he is talented, too, with a wide audience that makes some $ for him.
