He Played Until...

Skeleton Piano

Halloween is coming and I thought it a good time to post a shot I took in a place called "Voodoo Blues" somewhere around Decatur St and Iberville or Bienville in New Orleans. It's one of those touristy t-shirt and bead shops you can find all over the place down there. But, they have some cool things adorning the shops and this skeleton playing the piano jumped out at me. I had to get a shot of it. If only that magazine rack wasn't behind the skeleton.

Anyway, have a Happy Halloween everyone and thanks for dropping by.

This shot was processed as usual. In addition, I added the Darken/Lighten filter from Nik Color Efex to kind of isolate the skeleton a bit.
