Tools of the trade (theme)

I hadn??t intended to shoot recorders two days in a row but unfortunately I hadn??t checked what today??s theme was before I shot yesterday??s Tuesday Inspiration recorder. However, I have plenty of different ones so I decided to go ahead anyway as these are very definitely the tools of my trade. This particular recorder, a treble made by Stephan Blezinger, is the one I use the most in my playing and teaching. I tried taking some images of the whole instrument but after some experimentation I decided that these close ups, featuring just the head and foot joints, worked better.
