A piano, disassembled and abandoned in an alleyway, plays one more note.

This is my 200th post, and is presented as a tribute to a good friend in Texas. If he hadn't taken his photo first, I never would have taken this one.

There are a couple of other neat numbers to share: I've just passed my 8500th visitor, and will pass 15000 page views within a week. My main camera, the brilliant and under-appreciated Olympus E-1, is six months old and has just passed 6800 exposures. Only 143,195 until its rated service life is up. Finally, photos that do not have a grey border are being hosted from my Flickr account, which is where I'm keeping most of my presentable work these days. This blog will continue to be my 'best of' and personal showcase.

Love the symetry, color and detail.
(The links are cool, too. Thanks.)
Congratulations on your 200th post.
No day is complete for me without checking here for a new photo.

wonderful macro. I have enjoyed looking at your photoblog.

I am happy to announce a proposed physical exhibit of Canadian photobloggers photographs June 26 to July 5th, 2006. The exhibit will be part of The Works Art & Design Festival. More information on it can be found at my website (http://www.spunwithtears.com/gettingphysical.html).

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
