I’ve been relishing the relative quiet of the countryside recently but even the quietest of corners on the planet have some identifiable noises, from the sounds of chirping crickets or birdsong to planes far overhead. Here are a few noises-filled photos.
Brass bands marching down 5th Avenue in Manhattan on St Patrick’s Day.
The fizz whizz bang of fireworks always brings out my inner child. This was taken at Seattle’s Space Needle one New Year’s Eve.
The refreshing splash of the fountain in London’s Trafalgar Square on a hot summer’s eve.

I love fireworks – also the ones in your photo, Ailsa! There always is something of that pure joy of a child inside of me, watching all those colourful flowers blossoming in the sky. 🙂

Lovely series, Ese, those bells are cool. Where were they?

Me too! Perfectly chosen words, I could almost hear the fireworks.

Those fireworks are cool! The way they surround that tower. Well captured, I always find it hard to take nice photos of fireworks. Here is my addition to this week’s noise: http://prettypacked.wordpress.com/2014/09/13/make-some-noise/

Brass marching bands. We have them but as many or of the same quality as you guys. Very American. Here is mine: https://regionalcognisance.wordpress.com/2014/09/13/travel-theme-noise/
I meant “not as many” sorry. Like one hundredth as many
Fireworks make a noise every time! http://windagainstcurrent.com/2014/09/12/travel-theme-noise-take-two/

Ailsa, I was delighted by this week’s theme. Noise as image – a medium for sight transformed into sounds. Love it!
