WTSB : Blur

13 Mar


the latest Words to Shoot By will be up very soon! here’s a sneak peak at my shots. our word was blur.

when i walked into McCarten Violins i got the camera itch immediately. the racks of hanging instruments were remarkable, and at the perfect perspective to blur out at the edges. these violins and violas are truly works of art in themselves; the patina on each slightly different. McCarten is in the same building that houses the amazing Pawtucket Winter Farmers Market. You should drop in for both if you ever find yourself in the area on a Saturday morning.

if you want a little more insight on what goes into making one of these beautiful instruments here’s a really cool video from Dustin Cohen featuring Brooklyn-based luthier Sam Zygmuntowicz. This is also the debut of Dustin’s “Made in Brooklyn” series.
