Running on empty

I??ve had a big concert today involving two recorder orchestras ?? one that I conduct and another that I play in. As I had a foot in both orchestras I had a very busy day and hadn??t taken a single photo by the time I got home, in spite of having taken my camera with me. After so much playing and conducting my brain was feeling decidedly fuzzy this evening and I was motivated only to get today??s photo taken as quickly as possible. After seeing Dan??s latest stationery challenge my Dad had given me a couple of these paper filing clip thingies (I have no idea what they??re called ??they??re for fixing papers together) so I spent a grand total of about five minutes shooting this and editing it on the computer before sitting down with a chocolate bar, a cup of coffee and an entertaining episode of Top Gear on TV!

I like very much this clip to newspapers. It has a completely strange air and titillates the curiosity before having read to you! Well done

Great shot. I was singing outside with 1 of my choirs as part of a festival in Kingston today. The listening to other choirs. So we've both had a musical day.
