Ann from Nelson, New Zealand

Great POV! Remind me what those round instruments are called. I've seen them played by street musicians here.

And looking forward to hearing about the aminus3 get-together. So wanted to join the one in Prague, but alas the forces of the universe took me in another direction. I hope to be more fortunate this time!

8 Mar 2013 8:46am

@Ann: The instuments are called "Hang"-(Never Hang drums-apparently) Hi Ann, I hope you can make it! I did announce the details yesterday....for about 5 minutes! I found out that all the hotels and eateries in the town we had chosen were charging a stunning premium or were already booked because of a massive horse race taking place 2 days before, so I've had to go back to the drawing board. As soon as I've worked out a date where folk can get together without having to pay over the top, I'll announce it.

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Superb image and fantastic pov Chris, were they as good to hear as they looked

8 Mar 2013 11:18am

@Doug: Hang are basically aids to meditation, and whilst they have certain similarities to west indian steel drums, they have a quieter tone caused by the fact that they are "Helmholz resonators"-(i.e. they create noise in a similar way to the way that noise is made when you blow over a bottle neck)-that said, you hit them rather than blow over them.

Tony from London, United Kingdom

I love the point of view and the balance is perfect with the columns framing the musicians. Really good photograph, very well spotted.
