Black and White Wednesday

I've got two black and white shots to share this week.

First, the library. 
I love libraries. 
I secretly want to be a librarian just so I can be surrounded by books all day.
I love walking through the book aisles, scanning the shelves for interesting books.

Second, my violin.
Monday was the 258th birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. 
This was my tribute to the musical genius who left us with such beautiful music to enjoy for ages.
My violin is dated 1769....this beautiful instrument was handcrafted during Mozart's lifetime.

Joining in with Black and White Wednesday and BWW


  1. That violin shot is beautiful- soft focus and lovely.

    1. It is a treasure - I wish I knew it's history. In grad school I did a paper on its maker, but I'd love to know who has played it and all the places it's been.

  3. Love these! Hoping to get back into some photography posts after I finish up with my Mexico posts :)

    1. Ahhh...but your Mexico posts have GREAT photos - the best kind!

  4. Divine shots ~ great perspective in library photo and love shows in your very creative violin photo ~

  6. Violin shot could be in a magazine! Love it!!

  7. That first photo makes me want to take my camera to the library! It is one of my favorite places!

    The age of your violin is amazing.
