Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: January 14, 2018

Welcome to my Odd Ball Challenge.  This challenge is for those photos you take that don’t really fit into any common category.  There is never a theme to this challenge, so what is an odd ball is all up for you to discover and photograph.

I hope that you have a lot of fun with this challenge!  To read more about Odd Ball photos click here.

My Entry for the Week

I happened to pick a theme for this week.  This challenge never has a theme, so please feel free to add our own photos to your challenge post.

While driving around Aurora, Oregon, I found this old piano and water cooler for trash pick up.  I just had to take a few photos of the old piano.

And here are a couple of close ups.

I found this van while driving around Oregon City, Oregon last week.  I wonder if he could have saved the piano.

  1. It is hard to save a piano by the time it has reached that stage. After the pegs and hammers are gone … and it looks very much like the sound boards are cracked, too … but i take the loss of an instrument personally. I can never be happy to see something as special as a piano broken into pieces like that. Since all the keys and hammers are gone, I suspect someone took them for reuse on another instrument and that would probably make me feel a little better. At least that.

  2. Here in my neck of the woods people are always advertising pianos that have outlived their usefulness. “Free piano. Pick-up only.” One day I hope to get one when I have the space and the means to pick it up.


  3. With the water cooler next to the water damaged piano, I wondered which came first. Sad picture for me, the reluctant piano player. I bled over a piano similar to this. Yet became a music major much later. Those 15 years of constant lessons and practice were bittersweet. I would have gladly poured water over it on occasion. Yet treasure its many insights for my life. I wonder if there is something a crafty person could make of the strings and the very pretty pedals.
