Around and about in Droitwich 4

Now I went to a bit of trouble with this to get a contre jour picture without a great blob of burnt out sky. So any complaints from up north will be ignored  

 

 

I found this on you tube and I think it is rather good

I think they should consider singing it in English, Bill...

...and, perhaps hire a choreographer...
Bill Phillips: I thought they had all decided to go home when they started wandering about
I am appreciative - and I love the loooong shadow cast by that lovely tree!

Beautiful harmony!
Bill Phillips: That is because you are a wonderful human being.....unlike someone I could mention who drinks coffee with Frank
your contre jour is perfect Bill... and it's nice to see a bit of snow...
that's because i have so much of itsmile....petersmile
Bill Phillips: That was it snow wise. We did have a few flakes mixed in with the rain going into Worcester yesterday morning

Love the long shadows, wat is een contre jour?
I think this is a wonderful picture.
http://theamsterdamvocalcompany.nl/wie-zijn-wij/ These singers are all sing-teachers and vocal-coaches. They all have there personal vision about singing but want to share that with others. What better to do that as a vocal group. Great harmony, they know what they do (I think)
Bill Phillips: My Dutch isn't up to reading what is on the website but they do sound good.

Bill Phillips: That is because nice people all come from the Westcountry Lisl
You did a fabulous job, Bill. Gotta love the shadow-play!

a fine winter image with the long shadows! We have got a bit snow again this morning - and I'm happy like a child!
Bill Phillips: Still no snow here Philine but it is looking like a nice morning with a blue sky!

Contre jour? Mon Dieu! You're be coming out with other French words before long - such as "restaurant" and "entrepeneur". It's a very pleasing image and shows the delights to be enjoyed at this time of year.
Bill Phillips: It is de rigueur to use these words Alan

Worth cropping a little from the right Bill, that shadow of the main tree is the story here. Great!
Bill Phillips: You are right I think Mike, there is nothing there that adds to the picture

Is this near your house Bill?
Bill Phillips: About 5 minutes walk Ridge.....obviously it would not be far as I walked
I am Southwest so will not complain one bit of this find shadowy shot. Th singers were good too.
Bill Phillips: South west is always good Mary. I come from the South west originally.
A lovely combination of snow, shadows and light Bill. Droitwich Friday is looking good
Bill Phillips: That was the peak of our snow thus far Janet
lovely winter picture Bill... enjoy..

Bill Phillips: Thanks Ronky..have a great weekend
It's turned out very well Bill. Like the music, this choir have several videos on YouTube, I like this one in particular http://youtu.be/Ui2a2KTx60s
Bill Phillips: I will have a look at the link later Brian.
Coffee Lover from Cleveleys.Cropped from the left and right would make a better image IMHO.
Bill Phillips: Not sure about cropping the left but I will have a go and post the result on faceache

Yes, ignore them, until the next pub session. A great shot about white rain in Droitwich.
A welcoming green space, nice shadows.
