Soft Grand Piano Man
Photograph - Photo Manipulation To Print
Back when the grand piano was first introduced to the desert climate there was much concern. Rightly so, there had been several independent tests conducted that showed less than promising results. In many cases drooping occurred and even melting has taken place after a minimal exposure to the extreme heat, yet, here they are. Left here to fend for themselves. As I set up to shoot this sight I saw him appeared like a mirage, carrying an umbrella to shield himself from the deadly sun rays and had a bundle of sticks over his shoulder. I backed away and sat down as he pulled out this tiny little pocket knife. I watched for hours in amazement as he carved, wood shavings flying everywhere, crutch by crutch, precisely placing each one around the piano to build back stability as he goes. He says, "My work here is done" and starts to walk away. I jumped up to shoot this amazing sight just before he disappears as fast as he arrived into a mirage. I never got his name, so, I just called him THE SOFT GRAND PIANO MAN and his legend lives on.
