Lost In The Music

He played, but from somewhere outside of the hall.

Our first evening in Xian included a program of traditional orchestral music, dance and acrobatics. This wasn't as bad as the Peking Opera where I couldn't keep my eyes open. I managed to remain awake through the whole program.

I'm trying something new. The original photo had the flutist in the center and I didn't like it. So I extended the canvas on the left, then mirrored the left side of the original frame. That gave me room to crop- but then the blue background seemed kind of empty, so I selected the flutist, copied him to a new layer, moved and transformed him, then reduced opacity to . . . something something percent.
