An Unexpected Accordion Player at Tonara, Sardinia

An Unexpected Accordion Player at Tonara, Sardinia

An unexpected accordion player greeted me at the cortas apertas in Tonara, Sardinia. He was kind in allowing me to photograph him while he played melodic tunes on his grandfather’s old musical instrument.

They say that the early bird catches the worm, and in this case I caught a beautiful Sardinian sunrise, layered with soft fluffy clouds.

The Weekly Photo Challenge asks for “The Hue of You,” and instead of using a photo of stunning Sardinia, I decided to Andy Warhol myself. My hue is on the top-right, I love greens and purples.

I just may print this and give it to Hub for Christmas. 😉

What is your hue?

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

D.H. Lawrence said it perfectly in his 1921 travel memoir Sea and Sardinia:

Sardinia is another thing. Much wider, much more ordinary, not up-and-down at all, but running away into the distance. Unremarkable ridges of moor-like hills running away, perhaps to a bunch of dramatic peaks on the southwest. This gives a sense of space … lovely space about one, and traveling distances-nothing finished, nothing final. It is like liberty itself … ” D.H. Lawrence. Sea and Sardinia. 1921.

To me, Sardinia is an island filled with striking coastlines and impressive interiors. She’s also my home.
