Lap Steel


This old lap steel is from the 1940's, brand unknown but possibly an Oahu. Photographed in the owner's kitchen.

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

You have posted a lot of pictures of musical instruments but this one is exceptional. The lighting is superb.

Very artistic photo! Love the shadows and monochrome. It looks good - how does it sound? Regards from EAGAN daily photo

Lovely light and dark, Snapper. Makes the dings in the head look mysterious rather than just damaged.

All the criss-crossing lines are set to perfection.
