[quote=giuseppe]Some details of my piano




Guiseppe, Lovely pictures of your piano! And I couldn't help noticing, one of my second loves, is that a lever harp there in the reflection? Do you play harp, too?

Regards

Collyermum

very cool BGJ! Best looking C7 I've ever seen! (just kidding)

I have a Canon T1i - Wonderful camera to take pictures with, RAW is awesome, but not very happy with conversion to jpeg via camera or software.

Rotom, not sure if this is the best way, but this is how I do it

1 - Upload your picture to Photobucket
2 - For that picture under "Share/link", copy the "Direct link"
3 - In the PW reply, click "Switch to Full Reply Screen"
4 - In your post, place the cursor where you want the picture placed.
5 - Click on the "Enter an image" icon on the top of the post. I use "Insert a non-floating image"
7 - Paste the link in the text box.

If you use the "File manager" it just shows up as an attachment as you can see at the bottom.

I've posted enuf piano pictures so I'll post this one that I took of my late sweet neice Breanne, 1990-2008.

BTW, if anyone considers this off topic I'll glady remove it.

Yes, I am learning the lever harp by myself from about six months. It is a 34 strings Salvi Donegal, wonderful instrument!

On sunny mornings, during a few weeks in early spring and late autumn,
for a brief moment the sunlight touches a small part of my piano
and finds a way to create a gracious golden reflection.
