After days of taking stuff that was, for want of a better term, mostly crap, I finally managed to take some decent shots yesterday. We went over to my father’s house for Easter and I took a few things that I’ll probably put over the next few days including this shot of his piano. What made me smile about this shot when I was working on it was that it didn’t require any spot editing. Whenever I take a shot of a reflective surface in our house I often need to spend a few minutes polishing it first. With four kids in the house (sometimes five) just about anything with an altitude of four feet or less nearly always has a fingerprint or two, or biscuit crumbs, or some other foreign body stuck to it, so it was really quite fascinating to wander around a house that gleams from top to bottom ;-)
I did intend to take some photographs that didn’t include reflections, as I seem to be rather stuck on this theme at the moment, but I really like how this one turned out – it seems pleasantly simple and, for some reason that I can’t really figure out, it seems like a really peaceful image (if that makes sense).
