The subtle tones of the bagpipes caught my attention when I was twenty miles away and were a siren song to a photographer who likes street/candid photography. This photographer is also quite partial to some occasional bagpipe music.

Alistair Brown is a Scot currently on a round-the-world trip, and is making a bit of brass by playing his pipes. Presumably he'll also use them as a distress beacon if he gets lost in the bush (forest, wilderness areas).

The red tassels are attached to the drones with traditional Scottish zip ties.
