FOTO FINISH: something old - alguna cosa vella

This is my entry for Foto Finish. Something old. There were so many things I was thinking of... the old thatched cottage next door, the castle in the village...
but I wanted something that I own (proudly own) and here it is, my fiddle.

Aqui teniu la meva entrada del Foto Finish: alguna cosa vella. Tenia unes quantes coses velles al cap, un cottage que hi ha aqui al costat, o el castell que hi ha al poble... pero volia alguna cosa que fos meva, i aqui esta, el meu violi. 

this photo is too blue...I know... but I kind of like the "blue mood" it has...
el blau d'aquesta foto es massa fort, ja ho se, pero m'agrada el toc que li dona...

It was my grandfather's, although he didn't play. It was badly damaged and I took it to a luthier who did a great job and I started learning how to play Irish trad. I think it is the oldest thing I have at home, it's from the 1880-90's, and I love it! its sound is beautiful (except when I'm playing it!)

Era del meu avi, pero ell no el tocava. Estava forc,a atrotinat i el vaig portar a un luthier perque l'arregles. El va deixar fantastic i vaig comenc,ar a aprendre a tocar musica irlandesa. Crec que es la cosa mes vella que tinc a casa, es d'entre el 1880 i 1890 i pico... i m'encanta, m'agrda el seu so (menys quan soc jo la que el toca!)

  1. Oh my goodness. What a treasure! I love stringed instruments. I used to play classical guitar, but haven't played in a long time.

    Weird how you couldn't link up. I'm glad you persisted anyway.

  2. How lovely! I'd love to hear you play!!!

  3. Lovely photo. My Guy plays acoustic guitar and plays a lot of the traditional Irish music. It's wonderful to listen too. Very cool that you learned to play.
