Thanks for asking, Mic.
The title is “Pedalmania” which doesn’t appear on the post — as occasionally happens for reasons I don’t understand.
That might be all you need to know, but just in case, the image was taken of a small, old, upright piano that is destined for outdoor display and public use somewhere in town. During the painting process, some of the key coverings have come off and fallen next to the pedals. A paint-splattered drop cloth completes the picture.
Thanks for the explanation, ag. I noticed all of the pieces listed in your TAGS but I couldn’t figure it out. I have heard of these public pianos; never have seen one.
Thanks for alerting me to the misidentification, Mic and apologies to you and Ken for confusing the two of you. Went back and made corrections so the record is now as if it never occurred. Is this the same as re-writing history?
I wasn’t sure what I was looking at either, until I read the tags and of course clicked to enlarge. Then, my immediate association was an unfortunate one – we had an old upright for a while when I was in my early teens, and no one played it. So one day my father decided it was time to get rid of it. And that he did, with the help of my brother and various tools – they just smashed and broke it all up in the driveway. Some of it probably became firewood. I was horrified.
That aside, it’s a great image! Eliminating the depth really makes things jump.
We had an upright when I was growing up too that no one played. It did make a very good room divider though in the bedroom my sister and I shared. Not sure what happened to it eventually, or to the nice relationship she and I once had. We haven’t spoken to or seen each other in years.
Glad you liked the photo despite its unpleasant association.
