Alphabet Photography Project: X is for Xylophone

We’re returning to New Mexico this week, the subject of V is for View, with this photo taken two summers ago.

When we stay with my sister, one of our weekly visits is to her local Farmer’s Market.

It’s a fabulous market, with every imaginable kind of chilli, including the fire roasted hatch chillis that I love! It is full of colour and amazing smells, and really is a must-do.

One week, a group of musicians were there too, playing beautiful wooden xylophones. They very kindly let the boys play, and it was one of the highlights of our day :)

    I’m a big advocate for exploring music, playing music and learning music, so much so that I’ve considered starting a blog linky based around music. That photo jumped straight out at me. We have two xylophones – one is just one octave, but perfectly tuned. One is a cheap M&S xylo which is out of tune, but creates a pleasant sound. Ours are nothing compared to this fine specimen! I bet it sounded awesome! Lucky boy…

    By the way, was brilliant to meet you, Sara (especially as I now know that I was getting the pronunciation of your name correct!). xx

    1. My oldest now plays the clarinet and we inherited a piano when we moved house (which badly needs tuned!). I agree that music is a really important thing in childhood. These musicians had two of these beautiful xylophones, and we heard them play. It was amazing!

      Lovely to meet you too!

  2. This sounds like a beautiful farmers market and how lucky are you that you get to go back this year. Great shot of your boy, he looks likes he’s having a great time. Thanks for linking up to #MyCapturedMoment xx

    1. He did have a great time, it’s a lovely place to visit, but the musicians were an added bonus this time!
