Header Challenge 26-01-11 = Pipes

Our Dave chose this weeks Header Challenge - "Pipes" - Ive asked our Headbanger Team if poss to post early this week as we Have to take MIL home early thurs morn.

Pipes = give us a great choice of photos for this theme - My Posts no 1 = is the Mighty Organ from a Church we visited some time ago.
This is certainly a Mighty Organ.




My 2nd post pic is from Nottinghams (Gailsmans area) Riverside fair and its the famous Steam Organ, I really love to hear these play.



My 3rd Post pic (Dave will love this one) is - Scottish Bagpipes - I really enjoy this sound too, and love the dances that go with the Bagpipes.





My 4th and last post pic comes from Austria (Tom Fishing Guy has visited here) The local Postman and his friend played at the Hotel we stopped at in Waidring. This is a smoking pipe and he went around to see if some of us had enuf Puff to keep the pipe alight.
Me included - Yup I did have the puff to.lol.

Now - My Header is also from Austria - up the mountain side were these cows and they were sussing (checking) out these pipes, I just had to add one of the cows thoughts of these pipes - Milking Pipes?? poor old Mildred. lol.
I think Lanny will like this one - Its a farming theme.

Please visit the other Headbangers and leave your comments please - you will find the team on my side bar - just underneath my Header.

Also check-out my youtube pipe music - I reckon you will find this most interesting?


Let the Challenge commence -

These are all great pictures for the theme. I really do like the church pipe organ, but who could resist those beautiful cows?

Very interesting music indeed Stewart as is the video ! Would love to hear that might organ play also ! Great shots on the theme, and a wonderful header ;-)

[the word verification was 'angst' - something I think Mildred must have been experiencing ;-) ]

I forgot to mention, when I was here the other day, that we visited Biltmore House and they had a large organ there. Have you ever heard of this place?
