I will be honest here: I didn't quite understand this week's prompt. Because between brackets it said: straight, spiral, indoor, outdoor, fire escape... See my problem?? Anyway, I went with the straight (in my mind anyway) music, not the sound though, just the image.

Two years ago I went to the Military Tattoo in Rotterdam with my father for free and enjoyed an evening of very good music. There were several bands performing there from Suriname, Switzerland, Scotland and the Netherlands itself. One of those bands is a band I have had on the bus several times (which is how I got the tickets): the Royal Military Band Johan Willem Friso. They play everything from civilian and military concerts to tattoos, remembrance services and more.

This is my 20th entry for Photo Theme for Thursday. Why not join?


  1. Wonderful. One of my most memorable musical experiences was the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Just fabulous.
    Love this photo, Mara, it brings back memories of my father playing in a brass band.

  2. Sounds like fun. My father loves watching bands perform. Sounds to me like the prompt was about stairs.

  3. See, how nice it is to transport bands ! Maybe one day Lady Gaga will climb into your bus, lol !


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
