WOW...thanks for the ribbon and comments. It is always fun to win one of these.

This image was taken with natural light and two reflectors to bounce light onto the flowers. The flowers are hot glued to the keys of the piano, and also hung with fishing line from a backdrop stand just out of the frame.

The title is from a Beetles Bod Dylan song that is full of nonsense.

Thanks again!!!!

Hmmm...

This is one of yours... only ONE of yours... in a long trail... that hasn't "spoken" to me.

I do love the ingenuity of the shot, though. :D

CONGRATS on your ribbon, Jen!!

Your photograph is so intriguing. I really love the way the flowers seem to be dancing on the keys, playing a C chord. =) *9*. Very beautifully thought out.

I really like this image although I'm drawn to the lower left side of the shot at the keys.. Wish they were in better shape.
