Theme Day: Tranquility

Today, June, 1, 2012 is Theme Day across the CDP(citydailyphoto) community. Here's my take on the day. No rat-a-tat-tat here. It's a drum sitting silent in the sun. I used to get most of my kicks by making a lot of noise. These days I realize I need to pick my spots. I can still get noisy, but have learned that I can still get my jollies on the sidelines watching others do the foolish stuff. Age has its rewards!

  1. That's a nice idea to think about.

    Are people like your drum?

  3. I driven up to the house many times where it's literally throbbing from the loud music blasting inside. But by the time I actually get inside, the volume has been lowered and Birdman is returning to his previous seat or whatever he was doing before I drove up.

    Smart man.

    :-D

  4. A silent drum. When I saw the thumbnail, I assumed I knew where he was going with his image. How silly of me!

    I am teaching my grand-daugter (not quite two) the difference between quiet and noisy. It is a very exciting game ... and.rather.noisy.

  5. only you, birdman, would choose a drum (silent or otherwise) for the theme of tranquility.

  6. Birdman, for some reason tranquility is not a word that I would describe your youth. Age must have mellowed you!

  7. You made me smile, but after thinking about it, nothing means more tranquility than a silent drum! Bravo!

  10. A drum at rest. Clever idea. Bet you wanted to give it a little rat-a-tat, just for fun.

  11. Tranquility. A drum. I hope you leave your brain for medical research, Bird.

  12. I hear you, but you still have to make noise every once in a while, just so others know you are still alive.

  14. One of the most unique takes on the theme I've seen Birdman, surely after the shot was taken you would have had to pick up the sticks, right!!

  15. Great shot. The thing that truly makes this tranquil is the lack of drum sticks and a small boy.
