Welcome to Piperazzi.net

For the week of February 23 to 27, 2009

This week we have all submitted photos.

Piperazzi will be going on hiatus for an indefinite period because of a lack of new material. While Piperazzi has a large collection of piping photos, they can be very repetitive due to the fact we attend the same games every season and see the same bands and people. Rather than continue to inflict this on the visitors here, we ask that any of you who have photos either of current or historical interest to the piping community to help out here by sending a few along for publication on this site.

If enough material comes, Piperazzi will continue but if not, it will be necessary to close things down until we return from Scotland this fall. Piperazzi will be in Scotland for 11 weeks and intends to visit as many games and events as we can so hopefully things will pick up after that.

If Piperazzi does go quiet, this last week will be left in place until the revival is announced on the Bob Dunsire forums. We are also working on opening the full archive and will announce that on the forum as well.

I would like to thank everyone who has supported this site, particularly the kind folks who have sent me their photos. Also, this would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors for the first year. The intent is to continue without sponsorship, leaving the original sponsors in place in the archive and on the weekly pages for the time being.

The interest has continued to grow since the beginning and it would be a shame to have to shut this off even for a few months.

This project is meant to bring back to the net an idea originally developed by Bob Dunsire.
For a period of nearly five years, Bob's Piping Photo of the Day, better known as PPOD, brought images from the piping World and related aspects for us all to enjoy.

When Bob was no longer able to keep up the site, he transformed it into an archive, still accessible from the link herein, so that we all could enjoy this resource.

After seeing many requests and also other ideas come and go to revive the PPOD, a decision was made to try and bring something of its like back into regular production.

After consulting with Bob's family and receiving their enthusiastic support, this small effort is the result.
Your photos are always welcome, and as you'll see I usually try to share at least a few viewer contributed photos each week.
Send them to:

If there is a short story behind your photo, include this in your email and I will place it with your image.

Please note:
If the images above look strange in proportions, you probably need to 'reload' or 'refresh' your browser's image of this page. The same is true if the full size photo differs from the small version above - 'reload' or 'refresh'.

For the present, and until we receive some more up to date photos from you, these will of necessity be images from my not so up to date collection.
