Susan's Hands


Susan is our beloved librarian. She's also one of Gabriola's most dedicated music fans and a lifelong folkie. This beautiful rosewood and spruce guitar has been her instrument of choice since she was a college student. There's a touch of movement (her index finger) in the photo as she was just about to change chords from C to F, the nemesis of every aspiring guitarist.

Number 11 in the Musician's Hands series

Canon 40D, 50mm f2.5 Macro, ISO 200, 1/20s @ f4, beanbag for support

Another great one. I enjoy these so very much Snap. And the every popular beanbag! Thanks for reminding me. My daughter is going to make some for me and my photography buddies.

Love this shot. The hand nearest to the camera in the focus, the other not and all giving such a feeling of concentration.
