Violin silenced by neglect and ravaged by time.

I like the focus on the carelessly knotted strings, but the wood grain below is also pretty cool...
Nice work, but...kinda sad, too...

I agree about it being kinda sad. These instruments need to be treated with respect and love. The stories this violin could tell...

I agree it's sad but strong.

Very well depicted. Wouldn't you love to know its history and that of its owner? But that's part of the beauty - questions unanswered.

I absolutely would but agree that's part of the charm of this old violin. Thank you for commenting.

Great capture! Of course, I have a partiality to violin photos but you've given a new life to this old fiddle. Judging by the f holes and the varnish, this doesn't look like it was much of a violin even brand new. I suspect it is prouder now than at any other point it its existence. Well done, indeed!

All best wishes,

Endre

Thank you Bob.

Endre, I agree that the quality of this violin is an entry level version but seeing this violin sitting on old chest in the living room of an historic home we were allowed to visit, I realized it might be a good fit for the WA.

I grew up playing the violin in L.A. during the 70's (San Fernando Valley) as my Dad was a fan of Orchestra's, I still have my old violin but haven't touched it in many, many years. I never had your extraordinary gift for playing the violin but I appreciated the chance I had to experience playing the violin.

Very nice photo! I really like the crop and color. Both give this image a lot of character.

Very nice image, the music it once played is trying to speak out through the image.
