The Tuesday Inspiration: Practice makes perfect

Recorder practice is going to form a large part of my TI this week as I revise the solo part of a concerto ready for a recorder orchestra day on Sunday. With this in mind it seemed logical to use my recorder and the music, a piece written for me by my friend Steve [mayhill.co.uk], for my themed photo. Having taken some carefully composed pictures using a tripod this was a spontaneous, hand held shot taken as I packed up. It was only when I got the photos onto my computer that I realised it was actually a stronger shot than the others so I decided to do a black and white conversion in Silver Efex Pro to bring out the texture of the wood.

Thanks to David [photoblog.com] for setting today??s theme. Last Tuesday??s theme was ??abstract light??. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [photoblog.com].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stéfan [photoblog.com] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.

      Absolutely superb and the choice of the monochrome is excellent to emphasize the texture of this beak
