83rd place (joint)
These are the hands, the piano, and the music sheet of an 84-year-old friend. She very kindly offered to let me take the photograph of her hands, and this is the result after three visits and lots of takes - it was not an easy task to get a clear shot as the lighting was not great. Just goes to show that the love of music and the love to play lasts forever. Title from the words of the song "When I fall in love". She was playing this piece of music when I was taking the photo.
