I'm sorry that I haven't been around lately, but after a wonderful vacation the end of October, there was lots of work to do. And then we spontaneously decided to spend Christmas with my Mom in Michigan. It was an absolutely wonderful trip and it was very, very special.
Here you see one of my talented sons, Kris, playing his heart out on the baby grand in my brother's living room. He was lost in the music and I think black and white captures the mood best. In the CI, I offer you another B&W - his hands on the keys. Ebony and Ivory - perfect for the TOM, don't you think.
I have so many images from our recent trips and I can't wait to share. See you around!
Das ist ein super tolles Foto, total stimmungsvoll. Man fuehlt die Hingabe ohne viele Worte. Keine Frage, hier passt fast nur b/w, es macht das Foto noch persönlicher, bringt die Gefuehle hervor. Da hat sich Deine Mutter aber gefreut, Weihnachten mit Familie.
Ja lass uns gelegentlich abmachen. Wir waren schon so lange nicht mehr in Bayern.
Very nice B&W and I do think you have captured a mood in this scene. I like the CI just a touch better than the main image. I think the intimacy of focusing on the hands is what makes like better. The main sets the scene but the hands make the music.
Nice to meet you here again. These are fascinating and very atmospheric photos - a somehow cosy and intimate atmosphere. It's more than "only a photo" ...
You managed the difficult litght skillfully.
Herzliche Grüße aus dem nasskalten Westfalen! Ihr werdet wohl am wochenende einschneien ...
Happy New Year to you and your family Linda!
Both images are very special and certainly both are excellent for the theme. My son used to play guitar in a punk bank and I remember even being moved watching a gig of his then, with his coloured haanekam (spiked hair) and safety pins, I can only imagine how it is listening to your son play a baby grand.
Always a joy to see new uploads from you! You have captured the mood nicely in the main photo. I like the CI a little more as it has less distracting elements and it is also a great close -up of playing hands on the keyboard.
Happy 2019 to you and your family!
This is a very fine, moody shot in B&W, depicting black and white. This is the first B&W photo I will include in my preliminary choices for this month.
A Happy New Year to you and to your family, as well!
