I've had this shot for a while, but haven't gotten around to posting it. It is in an abandoned school, and the music book propped on it is appropriately titled "Piano Course."

SONY SLT-A77V 1 second F/11.0 ISO 200 45 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

A nicely framed shot of this old timer which was replaced by electronic keyboards. It's a fine shot of the piano left behind.

How unfortunate to see this piano abandoned when it appears in good condition. Great framing with excellent tones!!

Great in b/w with the scratchings more prominent as well as where the feet have been kicked against.
