A Sepia Violin

A few of the pictures I had to take for my photography class. That I’m *taking*, not teaching. (Yes, the background is funky. The violin was resting on a curling jumbo-sized calendar, on the floor, against white trim. As far as I know, we aren’t being graded on background for this one.)

This violin is around for pure aesthetics. Meaning I don’t play it.


It’s inlaid with mother-of-pearl, and has had a bad coat of varnish. (Read: Thick goop that looks formulated for outdoor use, slathered on over the inlays)  It actually looks better in sepia. I’ve had it in my closet for four or five years.  I think mum ‘n’ dad got it for 30 bucks off Craigslist?  It looks gypsy.

  1. Nice pictures! You could have them framed and hang them on your wall and then hang the violin next to them, since it’s not a violin for playing anyway.
