I started humming as this image appeared...
Louis: I can imagine you doing something from Il Travatore - oops, they don't have 6 string guitars in opera ...
A beautiful "portrait" of this beautiful instrument!
Louis: Thank you Elizabeth

wow- what a refined treatment!
Louis: Thank you Philine - it was quit a challenge to capture in the semi-dark.
HA! Great play on words, Louis, and fabulous conversion.
Louis: Thank you Ginnie. The guitar was on some chairs - so one lead to the other.

Your desire to have been a rocker is surfacing Louis..
Louis: I wouldn't mind a stash of their cash, but for the rest I should keep off a stage, Chris.
A likey for me Louis

Very chic, Louis
Louis: Glad you think so, Lisl.
Good title and a fitting image for Black Mondag Louis.
Louis: Thank you gutteridge. I don't see too many boats. Bicycles I have to hunt down. So the one I can easily participate in, is Scwarzer Monntag - especially, since I like b&w pictures - especially strongly contrasted - like the tall guy does them.
Sitting down here may give a few cheap thrills. Hmmmmmm
Louis: Cheap trills? Can happen, Mary.
The lighting of this is excellent, and the whole image has a graphic feel to it.
Louis: Thank you Brian - I tried something for b&w Monday.
Very effective, Louis, is that a six string bass, not common...
Louis: Thank you Frank. It is a 6 string bass - the band also had a violin, drums and a standard (unamplified) guitar.
I think one would be advised not to sit on that!
Louis: Good thing it was well visible, Tom.

A fine instrument that regrettably I was never able to master. I remember being told once that you had to imagine the body as that of of curvy woman. That didn't help my finger work either! Fine shot.
Louis: Yes, not possible to 'play a woman', you will burn your fingers smile
gorgeous in monochrome and high contrast, Louis.
Louis: Thank you Ayush - I like to create mono's like that.
