Good vibrations

At one of the schools I visit I share my teaching room with a drum kit. I??ve often thought it would make a good photographic subject so when a pupil was absent today I grabbed the opportunity to take some photos. This is a close up of the snare drum ?? these coiled wires are reason this drum makes such a bright, buzzy sound as they vibrate against the skin of the drum.

Ugh, snare drums, bane of my life when they're loose and you're trying to play piano/bass/guitar...
Great shot though, very original :) what do you teach?

Very neat. They look like they could be sound waves also! :) You do such wonderful things with black and white.
