Major Minor

From time to time I work inside interesting buildings on installation jobs, old churches, schools, or theaters, and there are times I come across things that make for great photography subjects. Old closets full of decorations, stacked chairs, dated technology, I come across all sorts of interesting things sometimes. Recently while working at the chapel of a local college they had a grand piano on stage opened up and I simply had to take advantage. The beautiful, soft natural light gave this image a lovely tone that accented its aging innards. I love how the shallow depth of field allows you to see details underneath strings in the foreground.

I figured there must be some piano lovers out there such as myself that would enjoy this as a wallpaper. Sadly, I never did learn how to play but I sure do love to sit in front of a nice piano and play a few invented chords. The way each note resonates in the large instrument in front of me is calming and the reason it’s among my favorite instruments. So, until next time, enjoy!

    Beautiful! My dad is a piano player, so they will always be close to my heart. It is definitely an amazing instrument – I should have stuck with those piano lessons. ;)

If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
