Robbie's Hands


Robbie Huston plays tenor (and occasionally soprano) for the Gabriola Recorder Ensemble. This photograph was made right after their recent concert at The Commons. For anyone who might be interested, the instrument is a maple baroque-style tenor recorder made by Roessler

Number 5 in the Musician's Hands series

Leica M3, 50mm Summicron, 1/125s @ f5.6, Kodak BW400CN

Oh I really really like the light in this one Snap. I learned something today. I thought recorders were just played by elementary students in music class! Who knew!!!

Both your and Virginia's photos today give the viewer something to listen to, whether the mellow sound of a recorder or an intimate conversation. You just have to imply it and leave the rest to your audience. Nice work.

Under your inspiration I tried a photo of a musician's hands today. Problem was there were three of them and they were percussonists!! My focus became quite confused. I shall try again.
