play me a melody, get me out of this rut

Photobucket
For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to take pictures at a piano. I've played for fifteen years, and it's a huge part of my life, sometimes to my chagrin. Note to self: do not change your major to music. Ever. No matter how much you love to play the piano, you will never love practicing piano for five hours a week.

Anyway, I was super excited when I got ready this morning and saw the way the light was shining on to the piano in my sister's living room. My tripod was close by, and I just couldn't resist snapping these photos. That's one thing off my bucket list! Photobucket PhotobucketPhotobucket
I've been in a huge photography rut lately. I know it happens to the best, but it's incredibly disheartening. I feel like my style isn't...me. To keep myself from completely losing my passion, I've been forcing myself to take photos. I tried to just...feel...and not think today when taking photos. So I just snapped away; looked for small details that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Has anyone else gone through an artistic rut?

  1. I'm currently suffering from a huge poetry block. Usually, despite my circumstance, location, or anything really, I can sit down and write something worthwhile. But lately I just can't come up with anything at all. It's absolutely horrible, and little terrifying.

    My photography comes and goes and I'm pretty sure I was much better at it four years ago when I had a cheap, crappy camera and no experience. I've learned to be okay with this.

    Also, your hair looks nice. =)

    1. Oh dear, I know what you mean. In the past, I could write short stories on a whim. I have so many ideas, but lately, I just can't write. No words come. It truly is terrifying. That's what kept me sane for so long!

      I think your photos are lovely! I believe part of my problem is that I'm going through a spell of clinical depression. I just lose interest in everything when it gets a hold of me. It'll pass, eventually.

      And thanks!

  3. Great photos. When you talk about practicing, though, are you sure you don't mean 5 hours a *day*? 5 hours a week doesn't sound too bad (I did this when I was a child taking lessons).
