My new/ old accordion
For a little while, my parents were running a vintage furniture business. They're still in the habit of going to auctions and picking things up, and recently acquired me an accordion!
I wish I knew how to play it better, but I've been wanting one for a few years. I can handle the chords on the left hand, but would never be able to do a right-handed melody along with it though! Not without some serious practice.
Matt's been getting more and more into photography, and took this opportunity to try out some new, fancy lighting techniques. He wants to set it up so that we can start taking style photos inside. I know that daylight is always better, but there's such a little window of it available now that fall has arrived. Plus taking style photos out in the cold... not fun.
I think I look a little like a school teacher here because of the black board in the background... it's actually for lighting purposes :P These photos were kind of a "test."
(nose a little red because it was a bit of a weepy day!)
