'The Piano Has Been Drinking'

Post by davechinn » Wed Nov 21, 2018 11:45 am

Okay, I suppose it takes a twisted mine to consider such titles or EVEN to find a liking to Tom Waits' music, but sometimes I do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPPtrqvHGEg

This image was taken on the streets of New Orleans and here again, trying to make something out of nothing. Thoughts and comments?

Nice one Dave. Oddly, I've never captured hands playing the piano. I like this very much, including the sinuous movement that you've managed to convey.

Yea, he does need to wash his hands, my bad though. Should have done a better job with the wash and polish. Thanks, much appreciated.

Thanks Minnie, this was a first for me with the piano. I have captured, guitarists, violinist, bassist and drummers. Always in search for more and the unique.
