The Hills Fill My Heart With The Sound of Music

My Roland RD-100 digital piano. I've been reduced to shooting still lifes around my home -.- I joined yearbook to take more photos, but yearbook meetings occur when i normally go out for photos, -.- Friday afternoons. Today my Brooks saddle came in the mail, and I took my bike down to Morgan Hill (next town to the south, about 20mi) Then i went up to downtown for coffee and pastries with Miss Maddie Kirkland :).

In response to my HDR photo of the lake and the bike, as I was riding down the trail, I'm noticing a hint of green in the hills :). which is great. Its still not the Açores, Scotland, or Ireland, but there is SOME green, that tuesday of 3 in of rain helped a bit.

Sometimes being reduced to shooting still life as in this case, is a good thing. Great depth of field with this. Did you consider this in B&W?

"My heart goes boom boom boom" every time I see a piano, since I dedicated almost ten years of my life to it. Absolutely perfect shot (even the tiny dust in the focused B-flat key :).

Cool, this really is a colour picture and with minimalistic effects very impressive.
As a keyboard man myself this touches me always and this time without any fingers
it leaves the keys free to you, to play whatever you want on a mind level.
Compostion perfect.
