Black On White

As soon as I saw this challenge, I was reminded of a poem I wrote in high school, Black Upon White. I can't find it, nor am I sure I would share such amateur stuff if I did. BUT it was based on my love of music and the piano, showing that the keys and the written music are black on white. This was my favorite of the pictures I took this morning in remembrance of that.

Taken in natural lighting, no flash, in b/w setting, using macro.

P.S. Sorry I went AWOL last week...it was crazy. But I'm back on the wagon and ready to work!

I like your depth: how many of the keys you were able to capture. I also like that you chose to photograph something that already is black and white.

I too, like how you captured it so that it looks sooo long! Very nice!

This is a great shot Melinda! What a perfect idea--I love the angle and all!

Brittney said...

Nice angle! It's not the view you usually see when looking at a piano so it really drew me in. Perfect picture for black and white, I LOVE it!

It reminds me of Tom and Jerry in black and white! nice!

Teryn said...

You totally stole my idea! I love it though, I'm not sure I could have pulled it off so beautifully. I love that it really is a black and white subject. Just fits the challenge so perfectly.

A piano was the first thing that I thought of too! It just seemed to 'fit' the challenge :)
Great shot. I love the clarity and depth of it :)

Great job! I love your angle and DofF- if you would have cropped down a little more you would have made the keys seem endless.
