This is a macro shot of my mom's accordion. I noticed she had it sitting out in her bedroom when I got to their house. I was the first of the kids to arrive. This is the accordion she got used as young girl for accordion classes. I know people still use and play accordions, but I can't recall the last kid I saw sitting at the school bus stop with a accordion strapped on their shoulders. I do remember her playing it when I was a kid, but haven't seen her play in many years. I didn't ask why she had it out. Maybe she foresaw the photo opportunity!
