a musical encounter at the beach
last sunday my dad & i went to Kijkduin for lunch. when we got out of the car we heard the sound of brass music coming from the shopping mall along the boulevard. we went over to have a look and a listen and of course i grabbed my camera....

a color symphony in blue, white and gold with the long shiny slides of the brass trombones lining up beautifully

the white helmets have gold shields and chains, and are topped with a bunch of blue and gold plumes

mellophones, trumpets and sousaphones all make their unique contribution to the sound of the band

the huge bells of the sousaphone overshadow the band players 

the band has a great youth section with lots of dedicated young musicians

even between performances they appear very focused and serious

sometimes almost contemplative....:-()
