Dark Beauty

A shot of my late mum's violin taken on my bathroom floor using natural light from the window. I think it oozes beauty.

    great photography here, andy. the light is perfect and all that rich wood is awesome. fine musical instruments have the same fascination for me that cameras do -- can't explain it, they just do. having been held in your mum's hands makes this a lifelong treasure.

    love the colour here, superb shot!

    Jim Rice Thanks Jim, I totally agree with you. I think musical instruments, particularly stringed instruments can be real things of beauty and as equally asthetic as a good work of art.
    keith aggett Thanks alot Keith, glad you like. I was going to post as a mono but the richness in the wood could only have been brought out in colour.

    Lovely, such warm rich color, both from the violin and the floor, and the light is exquisite. I hope the violin is played! It certainly looks capable of making fine music.

    Bob Taylor Thanks for your comments, unfortunately it isn't played. I've tried a few times (not for very long) but prefer to play the guitar.
    the holy violin Thankyou.

    Stunning beauty Andy!
    The warm rich tones of the glorious timbers - your Mum's violin - delicate and fine-boned against the raw texture of the floor is wonderful! Complimentary yet contrasting at the same time!
    I love the lighting and composition, with the angle of the floorboards beneath! Big fave for me!! : )

    I'm gradually working my way to catching up with everyone, hope you're well matey, and I will see your recent beauties shortly! : )
