Fiddle De Dee

By cdm36  
Being as it was warm and I was feeling lazy on saturday Wink. I took to just using the zoom lens all day, using it to isolate certain things.

Never going to set the world on fire here as its not a bird on a stick or a moody landscape Wink, . . . but I like it and thats all that matters, hope a few more of you do too Grin

If you got past the thumbnail, thanks for dropping in, hope you feel you made the right decision.

Thanks in advance for all comments etc, now off to make use of this sunny weather.

This is so beautiful, the loving precision of the fingers. Mono gives harmony, particularly appropriate here.

If this is what you produce when you're feeling lazy, god knows how good you are when you're on the ball!! Grin This image has got a lovely timeless quality about it, and I think the decision to focus on the hands end, instead of the bow end, was definitely the right one. It might not be a bird on a stick, or a moody landscape, but it's got the 'human factor'. Great study.
