flautist at the high school

This is my favourite picture from a Hamburg visit two years ago.  I had attended a concert given by students who were part of the Keiskamma music academy, with found instruments and donor supported lessons. Waiting for the school bus home, this lad played for himself. What tune? To celebrate what memory? I was too far away to know, but I think the music and the instrument meant a lot to him.
