Pay it Forward Entry - Week 32

in #community2 years ago (edited)

This is my submission for the Pay it forward Curation contest run by @thedarkhorse and @pifc.

This week, I'm travelling again... which means there a touch more time for Steem whilst I have days off, or am busy sitting in trams and trains or buses.... sometimes being able to draft a post or two to save for a rainy day is also nice as well!

However, @pifc is a weekly event that does not wait for any man... so I am sitting backstage before a concert (I think I have a bit under an hour) to write this one up!


Well, what better blogger to feature this week than one that is music related! @montanacellist (REP 53) is someone that I've been quite familiar with through my work at @classical-radio. In my humble opinion, he is one of the best #classical-music posters at the moment, being that he is actually a good cellist! Surprising I know, but on a social platform you can't really expect the good quality stuff to rise to the top... It's all about marketing and looking good....

I hope you will forgive the fact that the featured post, "Fly Me to the Moon" Cello, guitar with Jupiter Sky-fish is a touch short on words, because I think the quality of the music is more than enough to make up for that. As a musician, I know that it is much easier to speak with your instrument than with words...

Macro Photography

@deltasteem (REP 53) is a poster whose work I keep coming across in Discord channels. He does some pretty amazing macro photography. I'm really impressed with what he can do with a phone camera and a modified lens! I'm a terrible photographer myself, so count me doubly impressed!

This last post is even more impressive given that it seems to have been done in low light. The sort of conditions that make most phones choke and produce blurry and grainy photos....

If you are interested...

This is the company that I'm keeping at the moment....

Oh, what a lovely and sophisticated choice! I can't wait to hear "Fly me to the moon". I will do it as soon as my sleeping-next-to-me-little-one wakes up :)

Thanks, and I hope you had a chance to listen!

We both did - my little son and me :) He liked it very much. Me, too :D

I have visited and supported both of your entries @bengy.

Thanks for your steady efforts. Amazing you have an unbroken string of contributions back to Week 1. Very impressive! 👍

Thank you for supporting the featured bloggers! It's been a great thing to be part of this project!

Amazing picks as always @bengy .. but I like your company picture the most😂 I enjoy the collaboration post 😊 that's one of my favourite songs after "what a wonderful world" and "redemption song" I enjoy both of them!

Ha ha, at least my company was not too chatty and just allowed me to quietly write and post! Glad you enjoyed the bloggers!

I am headed out to vote for both of them thanks for being part of this contest.

Thanks for supporting the two of them!

Visited and upvoted two wonderful posts amazing posts! Great catch.

Thanks, I think I'm going to try and do the rounds of a few more today as well!

Thanks for squeezing in your entry. I'm amazed at what a phone camera can do these days. Really need to look more into how to get more out of mine.

Both featured bloggers have been upvoted.

Yeah me too! Seeing all these photography posts makes me want to pull out the old digital point and click that I put away after phone cameras got to be "good enough".

going to vistit you celist now, @deltasteem has been featured before and i support his work even out of the PIFC so thats done. Thanks and heve a great time behind the scenes between the chairs, i am off to the vets with the dog

Thanks for supporting them! Not 100% sure, but I might be able to make the Rotterdam meetup... might be bringing kids though...

I have just visited both posts. 😉

Thanks for supporting them!

Been around to both features. Great entry as always.

Great! Thanks for supporting them!

Thank you for your continued support of SteemSilverGold

Thanks @bengy and to all friends;)

I will try to display good works of macrophotography even though the camera that I have now is just a smartphone.
