Spring and a guitar photo

Can you believe this weather? It would be really nice a month from now. Somehow I haven't been out shooting the daffodils, but I did get to take a couple of shots of Dick on Friday. The guitar and ukulele group's teacher was scheduled for a sing-along at the senior center. She asked members of the group to join her during it for a medley (and to promote the group.) Dick with his guitar and two others with ukuleles joined her for it. We had a really fun time and kept having to bring in more chairs for late arrivals. This week's AnnaLift inspiration looked perfect to me for one of the photos and I love the result.
