The Drummer

While we in the Temple of the Tooth group of four men, three drummers, two playing some kind of wind instrument, began playing a rhythmic sound which echoed throughout the temple.
Super shot!

Everything about this image is great - the solitary figure, the concentration, the composition and the atmosphere. Fav

@jgpittenger Yep, this trip sure was an experience Jane. Saw and experienced things neither of us had seen/done before. The main problem with the Sri Lankan half of our trip was that the tour tried to cram too much into the alloted time, whereas lengthening the trip by four or five days would have enhanced the whole thing significantly. Too much time spent in a small bus getting from A to B on some pretty slow roads. I struggled a fair bit because of my malfunctioning undercarriage. I walk slowly and find steps/stairs a major problem. I can get up, but very slowly and with difficulty so battling crowds at the same time, however well behaved, is somewhat of a nightmare. All these old places are full of stairs!

Wonderful intense image! Great composition! It looks like scars up his arm adding to the drama. I thought it was Imran Khan at first but I think he has switched from cricketer to Prime Minister not drummer! Lol!

@pamknowler Nah, not the mighty Imran. Sorry, Pam. This guy was almost as if he were in a bit a trance.

@robz All five of the musicians had similar highly-focused expressions, didn't twitch a facial muscle throughout a very lengthy performance.

@newbank Thanks Ruth. Difficult to capture much colour in there, it was either quite dim, or else had huge contrasts.

@gigiflower Very rhythmic, and a little repetitious after a while. I found the two wind instruments rather too shrill for my liking.

@gilbertwood @merrelyn @haskar @bizziebeeme Many thanks to each and all of you. It was an extraordinary place.

I really like the dramatic lighting of his face- brings out the intensity of his stare even further. Excellent shot!
