Music at the hospital

Posted by
Don (Spokane, United States) on 9 March 2013 in People & Portrait.

A visitor to the hospital sat down at the piano in the visiting room. The light on her back was very bright. The original was in color, but as I processed the shot, I felt the blown out hair would look better in black and white.

I like this capture in B&W, simple elements. Her purse is spotlighted with her hair. It tells a bit of a story, slightly sad, as hospital waiting rooms often tell, but she sits down to play music which is remedy for the soul.

What a blessing her music had to be for all who could hear it ... and you captured her so well. As Joyce wrote, music is a "remedy for the soul."

THe B&W tones down the bright light and gives this an old time feel.
