    Was once classical… still beautiful. Nicely done, and I bet someone could fix it up and make it sing again!

  • Thanks Helen, I appreciate your comment. It is my cousins violin and I borrowed it for a shoot. It was more run down than I had expected, but I was happy to go with that sort of theme for the shoot.

    beautiful! love the crack in the violin, coincides with the title so well and gives a real feel to the picture

  • Thanks Whitney! Thought long and hard about the title to go with the old cracked violin.
