Oops, sorry! I took the photos down because they are huge, even though I resized them (or thought I did!) How can I get photos to not fill up the whole page here? Can someone please clue me in and I will re-post them! Thanks!

Keep them 640 x 480 and it should be fine. After all it will all depend what screen resolution has a viewer set up on his computer. For example, for somebody who runs screen in 1440 x 900 they will seem rather small, but some other viewer with 800 x 600 will see your pictures pretty large.

Do I make sense?

Ok, here's another try, hope it works this time!

I said I would post a photo of my practice space, so here it is. This is me and Mr. ShiroKuro. When we sit properly, no problems, but if one of us wants to stretch...



Here's a bigger pic of my piano, which I left big (hope it's not too big) so that you can see that our floor is actually traditional Japanese matt, called Tatami. The matt is on top of a wooden frame, which does its best to hold up the piano! But the tatami under the piano is about a cm lower than the rest of the tatami!

ShiroKuro, yes, that is tight.

I love the picture of you. There you are, your face totally obscured by your hair. Very mysterious!

Which gives me an idea. Wouldn't it be fun if we posted pics of our pianos? But, in true AB style, we wouldn't just post a pic of the instrument. That's so *common!* \:\)

No, it has to be a pic of you playing the instrument, your features obscured if you like. I'll see if I can get one of my kids to take a pic of me practicing.

Oh, ShiroKuro! Now I really feel for you! And, I thought I had it bad with my space! I am glad, though, that your husband can concentrate as hard as he can while using the computer that the piano playing doesn't really bother him. Of course, my suspicion is that you play very well and he enjoys it anyway.

Plays--I don't think I have seen a pic of your piano before. It looks lovely, and you look so serene playing it. What kind of piano is it? I am also curious about the artwork behind you...?

I was playing the middle movement of the Pathetique when that picture was taken, so I was sort of lost in my own musical world. \:\)

The piano is a NY Steinway L, and the art behind me is a portrait by Russell Crayen, dated 1797, of HRH the Prince of Wales (George IV) with his nanny, Mrs. Martha Gunn, at Brighton. It's my favorite personal piece of artwork - thanks for asking about it.

This is not a current picture, but one of my faves from 2002. I'm the one in the middle, my younger son is closest to the camera, and my older son is playing down in the bass. The cat is helping. The picture is called "Six Hands Four Paws." The piano is a Weinbach 170, and we had just remodeled the front of the house so that we could fit a grand piano into it!

Cheers, Michele

Here's Adagiolady and I practicing. She's the blonde & I'm the brownette.

http://www.pianoworld.com/ubb/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?/topic/10/6317.html

Here's my space - it used to be the livingroom, now it's the piano room! It was too small for a living room anyway. The cathedral ceiling really helps with the sound.

Let's fix that and get it in here. I totally missed that back in that other thread. It is nice to put your faces with your names. (You're both smiling too much for there to be all that much sibling rivalry going on).

you guys are so cute...

Before you two came to the forum we discussed playing Schubert's Fantasy Opus 103 - fopr 4 hands. Elena played it on her CD and I for one thought I should learn it if I ever I got a chance to meet her and there was a piano lying around. The opening theme is incredibly beautiful and I think you can download a pdf of the first part of the fantasy here..

http://www.8notes.com/scores/1243.asp?ftype=ext

I bet you could do it together. Classical Archives has a horrible midi recording.

We just entered the modern age and got a digital camera, so I'll have my husband take a picture of me and we'll post it.

ShiroKuro, I thought I had it bad, being in the room with the only TV hooked up to cable! At least we don't knock heads if one of us stretches unexpectedly!

Great photos everyone.

Oooh I love seeing everyone's pictures!!!!! And I am just drooling over all the space, and the grands, and the artwork!!! (and the chicken!!)

Apple, what artwork do you have there? It's fantastic. And the colors, with the black piano!!! I love it!

Teachum, what kind of a piano is that? The finish/color is really lovely!

And Michele, with 2 hands and 4 paws! Very cute, and nice window thing-ys!

ChickGrand, I noticed that you have a chandelier over your piano, I bet that looks fantastic. And the picture of your piano from the top is really great, the inside of grands are soo pretty!!!

It's a good thing there's no limit on the number of exclamation points per post, because I'm sure I'd be over if there was!

Keep the pictures coming! They are only making me jealous, but I love to see them!

Go here

http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/fileuploader2.html

to upload your photo, then a URL for it will be sent to your email. When using the full reply form, click once on "image" (below the reply form among the many other "instand UBB code" options) This will bring up a window where you can C and P the URL, and then in the post it will appear as a photo.

The only trouble is, the photos tend to be huge, so you might want to resize it *before* uploading. (Something like 640 X 480 as suggested by mxs)

Wow, I sound like a pro, and I only just figured this out yesterday! \:\)

Thanks ShiroKuro. I'll have to work out how to use the scanner too.

I expect my piano will be the worst out of all the ones shown here.

KathyK - It's an Estonia 190 - Satin Mahogany. It was about 1 month old in this picture. Adagiolady came over to test drive it.

Rick - Thanks for fixing the picture. I can never remember how to do that. We joke about the rivalry, but we've never had a serious fight in our lives, except when we were kids. Even then we had to keep it quiet because our mom didn't let us fight things out! Also - your piano is gorgeous - huge too!

Apple - I hope someday to be good enough to play a duet with Adagiolady. I'm still a little intimidated. I get all nervous.

Michele - my cats don't come in the house, but one of my fox terriers would love to get on the bench with me when I play. It's always fun to see everyone's pic.

I would, but I play on a portable Yamaha keyboard at present. I would be embarrassed to post a picture of me playing a small keyboard, with all these beautiful grand pictures floating around. I suppose I could go into a piano shop and pose for a picture in front of a 'real' piano, but I have too much integrity to do that. \:\)

Actually, we have no representives from the Spinet Club either. You could help fill out two categories!

(I would post a picture, but I would need a few weeks shoveling out the living room before my wife would let me take a picture of it.)

You notice that my piano is covered with music and other junk, but we took the picture anyway because of the cat! She loved the piano. She was 19 when she passed away, now wee have a younger cat who doesn't care about the piano at all.

Shiro: the shutters on the windows are gone; we have fabric shades now. The shutters let in too much sunlight over the top in the winter, and the piano technician told me I had to cover the windows...or else! (she was trying to tune, and the tuning kept changing because of the sun)
