    Great photo Joe ! You look better with the moustachio :wink:
    That dangerous TNT device looks more like a trendy flashlight to me.

    Ah, may this answer all your questions

    http://www.photo.net/photodb/user?user_id=1174685


    (as you see Technuet, even my self portrait in this web page has the same vibe of 1) low key lighting and 2) never making direct eye contact with the camera....muahaha...I just do not like being photographed. I prefer to be behind the camera)!

    lol_nl, I'm not sure what piano teacher professors say, but I think you should sit however you are comfortable. I saw Joyce Yang or Lang play and she sat very close. Some people have mentioned that I sit too far back from the keys. :? Hmmm, maybe that should tell me something. Anyway, what kind of piece uses the piano and the bongo drum? :lol: ( I'm joking, but then again, maybe there is such a piece?)

    Bikini picture

    Just kidding! Although I do have one on file that I send to my friend as a joke of how us female teachers in Canada might increase the appeal of piano lessons to teenage boys. It is a large-busted gal standing in her bikini at the grand piano. If anyone wants it, let me know. Scared to put it here for fear that Chris or Robert will kick me off of the forum!

    I like to shoot guns/ collect guns / hunt (sometimes, though i have not been out for four years). You have to remember, unlike the Dutch practically every gosh darn Yankee has a gun or two or three 8)

    .....I have 7 :p :D :D

    So please Ms. Pianolady and Mr. Techo pardon me if I scared you a little. That picture is just there for time being, until I take a better one.....(or until I buy a bazooka :wink: )

    This seems to be the problem with the USA, everybody toting guns from an early age on. Bunch of cowboys.... Not that there's never a shooting in Europe, but it is by far not as common as guns can not be bought unless you have a license.

    You're supposed to have a gun license here, too, but that doesn't seem to stop the 'bad guys'.

    Might be a bit off-topic, but I know that Debussy wrote some pieces that call for notes below the lowest register of most pianos. I played on a Bosendorfer imperial grand once some time ago and found that the only way to make the sound of those notes palatable was to play them in unison with the next octave up, and voice it so the top note comes out clearer, the bottom note adding presence more than sound. I doubt many of those extended low notes would have much of a use on their own as the sound is just too brash.

    I'll have a photo to share later. :D

    It looks like daylight. Did the full moon put out that much light or maybe that comet that is currently seen in the northern hemisphere added to the light? Whatever, it's a neat picture.

    Yes it is a neat picture even though not very sharp (perhaps that is intended).

    But this is not a photography forum - the idea of this thread was that we can see what the other looks like. I have to say, juufa, you are being rather secretive about that, only posting your
    art photos.

    My camera was set on a tripod and I used a cable release with a 10second delay (giving me enough time to run from the camera to that spot). The camera was also set for 400ISO speed with an apeture (aka opening of the blades, bigger the number smaller the apeture) of f/5.2 and the shutter was open for 3 minutes.

    All this in mind the moon is very powerful in giving off light. That's why it looks like day. Sheesh people maybe you should go outside at night during a full moon, instead of playing the piano :D You'll be surprised!

    It is blurry by accident because it is too hard to see through the camera at night because of the lack of light available for the human eye. The rangefinder on my camera is quite small and dark :x

    Incognito, Mr. Techneut.

    My saying goes, "attraction lies in the unknown" why go overt when you can go covert and be mysterious? The unknown is very hypnotic and it leaves the viewer wanting more and leaves the viewer with lots of questions and fantasies :lol: :lol:.....so I think.
