Well folks, I've been trying to expand my creative vision (as it were), and have come to photography.

This is my piano. Unfortunatly, I don't actually play it. Time to get on that. But for now, it provides a lovely subject.



This is just the view out my front window when the clouds are in interesting formations.



This one has a bit more of a story behind it. The front window of my house is rather large, and sadly, birds can see through it to the windows at the back of the house, and don't realize that there is a pane of glass there. As I am one of the few willing to actually go find the deceased birds and take them out of the bushes, I end up walking around to the back of my house with a dead bird a couple times a year. It makes me retrospective. So the last time it happened, I decided to take pictures of it. This is how I found the poor thing, it had landed in the bush by my door. (for anyone wondering, it is a Cedar Waxwing.)



Comments and/or criticism would be greatly appreciated!

I like the first one a lot. But I might be a little biased since I've been playing piano for as long as I can remember. =D

Do you happen to know how old it is?

These are really good...! Smiley

But, I'm sad about the bird picture. You should definitley look into something to make sure that it doesn't happen anymore.

But great pictures!

I love pianos!  I don't play and am not sure I would be willing to commit to lessons, but every time I see one I get weirdly excited for some reason. Roll Eyes  I even go gaga over pictures of pianos, what's up with that?

For that bird problem, my mom had the same thing, and she found that hanging up windchimes and suncatchers outside the window kept all the birds from crashing into it.  That might work if you don't want to affix something directly to your window.  I've had a few hummingbirds get trapped in my greenhouse and once or twice it was too late when I found them, it is very sad...

The piano is somewhere around 110 years old, I'm not quite sure.

I have definitely looked into keeping birds from crashing into my window, but I haven't heard the wind chimes one yet, I should try it!

Thanks!
