30 Pianos and an Anniversary

Nerd alert: I play the piano. (And sing in a choir, but that's irrelevant.) Anyway, there is a real world art 'exhibit' in Los Angeles right now called 'Play Me, I'm Yours.' Normally, I'm not all that interested in modern art, but street exhibits like this really interest me. I was all over the painted cows in Atlanta a few years ago, they were pretty fun.

The exhibit, which has already been to cities all over the world, consists of 30 pianos that are hand-painted and scattered around LA.

This weekend, we visited the one in Claremont (a city in LA county). After waiting for a homeless person who had NO idea how to play the piano to finish his 45 minutes 'concert,' Marc and I jumped in to play a few notes and take some pictures. While many of the other pianos are painted with bright colors, this one was decorated with musical text.

So if you live in or near a major city, watch for this exhibit to head your way! It's definitely a good one.

And on another note, today marks 6 years with the boyfriend. Yes, our 'anniversary' is on tax day. Perhaps we should change it to another day. Can you do that? Anyway, here are six photos of us to celebrate six years together.

High School Graduation
Disneyland! A favorite place.
Halloween...I hope. 
Snorkeling in Cabo...I am terrible with flippers. 
College Graduation
Backpacking through Europe - Venice, Italy.

Hope you had a great weekend!
