Musical fingers (theme)

by Helen Hooker December. 15, 2010 5136 views

My hands are the tools of my trade (along with my musical instruments) so it seemed an obvious choice to use them in a musical setting for today??s hands theme. I tried various set ups (limited by my ability to keep my fingers in place on the piano keys and press the shutter button at the same time!) but I liked this one best. For those who are interested in such technicalities, I??m playing a diminished seventh chord. My harmony teacher at music college (who was quite a character) used to call this the ??Clapham Junction?? of chords ?? you can go anywhere from it. I??m not entirely sure this is true of Clapham Junction railway station but it was such a good way of explaining the chord??s possibilities that I still remember the saying twenty years later!

Great shot for the theme. This truly is multi-tasking, playing the piano and taking a photo at the same time!

Nice black and white. Did you think about using your timer? I'm just not good enough at Yoga to do what you did!

This B&W is magnificent everything contrasts it and beautiful luminosity and I like this title: " musical fingers "

Another excellent image, Helen, of your musician's hand! It wouldn't have been the same if you hadn't done it in b&w - ebony and ivory!
