the sweet balance of vinyl by ssilence the sweet balance of vinyl by ssilence
This is a photo from my gramophone. I love the crackle, the resonant Sound, the flair of the old voices. Real music are full with love and everyone who know it should see this small message in this photo. I have got a record from the '30s, an old german song, and I love it!

This is dedicated to all who love the soul of music...

wow, this is so beautiful! I love the composition and your use of space is really well done. The overall focus is also well done, I feel like it's not as well focused but the grainy look it's giving off actually really works with the photograph. It complements the crackle and grain heard on an old vinyl. Another thing I really appreciate are the volume of light versus dark in this piece. It works wonderfully with the overall picture and gives the needle a bit more character and personality. I really love this piece! You did a fantastic job on this!

Love this shot. I show it to the grandikids and they ask, "What is that?" Then the long explaination starts and the vinyl comes off the shelf. Thanks for sharing.
Love the shot! :D
