Portrait of a Cellist

I've always thought the cello to be the most emotionally moving of all instruments, most like the human voice. My wife and I, both musicians, are determined to take cello lessons someday when the kids are grown.

This photo kicks off a week (or more?) of pictures from a shoot I did this past Saturday for the Oregon Symphony. I ended up with well over 2000 photos of the events and musical groups performing all day long in Portland's Mt. Scott park. Now if I can just find the time to sort through them all...


  1. I haven't ever seen a cello before. I'm 8. Neat photo.

  2. I DID take lessons, I'll have you know!!! Or did you block out those memories? What??!? You thinky I no squeaky that cello very well?!?!?

  3. Oy, and I thought I had it bad with 600+ photos from a week trip to Yellowstone!
    But then, there's no need to take hundreds when you've a full scrapbook at home and millions of memories in your brain! (I worked there)

  4. I've always been partial to the saxophone myself. And piano.

    But I like this photo a lot!
