Did you smooth the skin on Santa's face, Astrid?
Picturit: No I did not need the iron to get the wrinkles out, this came straight from the camera. My Big Bro is a natural smile
Very nice, Astrid - he looks serious.... I'm so glad you captured his concert in audio as well... smile

Doesn't he look the part, Astrid - he has missed his calling
Picturit: I know he did, I think he did not fancy to carry the cello around wink a camera is more light.
This is just fabulous, MLMA! More Chris you cannot get (especially at Chad's house)!!! grin
Picturit: I know, thank you smile

Not many people know of my reputation as a cellist Astrid
Picturit: I know, too bad, they miss a lot of fun tongue

Oh, Astrid, where did you experience this scene - a new side of our multitalented dear Chris - surely he would like to play Edward Elgar's Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85 -but 'Silent Night' is more suiting now. A wonderful image!
Picturit: Last year I went with Chris to Chad's house and this is in the studio of Norma. I think he starts 'easy' on the things to play...

Nobody mentioned Chris' festive shirt worn only at specaial occasions - I want to do it.
Picturit: Always when he is with me he will wear the shirt smilesmile
Thank you Philine.
This is amazing Astrid, if only Tiff's performance was broadcast.
Picturit: .....if only... wink
One of my favorite instruments, Chris. Nothing can create the mood like them.

I just looked down and see this is your photo, Astrid, not one of Chris' selfies. It is now funny! Hahaha ha ha. My laugh of the day!
Picturit: tongue yes Chris took me to Chad's house last year and we took pictures... No selfie here smile

Another of Sir Tiff's many talents. I can just imagine the tortured screeching noises he would make smile
Picturit: I still have problems hearing the high notes...
I bet he played you Elgar's cello concerto....all the right notes but not necessarily in the right order
Picturit: He did... we had so much fun with it.... smile
It really is a very good portrait Astrid, please tell me it really is Chris playing on the recording.
Picturit: No this is not Chris... the recording is from a grandson for his grandmother.
Thank you, Brian.
wonderful portrait...love the setting!
Picturit: That is Chris in the studio of his friend wife, Norma and Norma is taking cello lessons. We had so much fun, him pretending he can play.
Thank you, Robin,
Fine shot, Astrid...
Good stuff.
A fine pose smile
