Photo of young people in an orchestra. Front row, right, four girls are holding violins; front row, left are boys holding a saxophone and a banjo. In the center of the front row is the conductor, a man, holding a baton. 2nd row only faces of the group can be seen.

It was so cold that my shutter of camera was shaken.
