A slight variation on my original shot (the story is there). This one was also taken in Worthing(UK) last August. With hindsight I would probably say this is more 3rd movement, but still to Beethoven’s motif…

Obviously the first one was a straight shot, this is a composite. For a good friend who requested it :-)

1st movement:

3rd movement:

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    Right, and how many know this piano sonata by movement? I’ve always loved the passion and the anger I thought I heard in the third movement as Beethoven learned of his increasing deafness, and I began to lose my eyesight in my right eye. I do love your other shot, George, and explanation.

  • Thank you so much Jan, glad you like them. I didn’t know about your eye! I’m sorry :-(

    That was long ago, and I’m pretty used to it, but thank you. I do have two eyes, no cyclops here.
