Over the last few days, this blog has received an entirely new renovation!!!!  Simply put, everything was moved around, rearranged, and put back together a bit differently. 

These changes were made in order to have an online space that offered more versatility and the capacity for growth in the future. 

One of the biggest changes is the addition of the "Oreo and Buttercup" site.  It is a separate wing from this blog that houses all previous and forthcoming episodes of the travelling piano and her rowdy bench.  In the coming weeks, more additions will be added to it including a photo album, bios, and some other unmentionables. 

Back here at Where Pianos Roam, there will be changes in the content of this blog.  I hope to place more emphasis on my numerous creative projects such as those involving my music, visual art, knitting, and design work.  You'll find more photography and, as time permits, little short films that I will be making involving my music.  

In addition to featuring Videos and my weekly "Early On a Sunday Morning" segment, I have two new weekly segments.

Learning to Take Insanely Great Pictures

UPDATE 12/13: The Lumix GX7 is the successor to the Lumix GX1 that I review (and love) below. It's pricey ($828 on Amazon or $998 with lens) because it's new, and you can now get a screaming deal on the GX1 (as low as $227). The two big advantages of the GX7 are 25% less noise in pics + wifi capabilities (including app remote control). I haven't made the switch yet, but I did do a more in-depth comparison on the two cameras here. If you do, let me know what you think in the comments below!

My wife and I are on a quest to learn how to take insanely great pictures. We are just starting this journey and I invite you to share it with us if photography is a passion of yours. The picture above is one of our first attempts at taking the kinds of photos that have a "wow" factor that transcends a regular photo. The photo was taken by my wife; that's my friend Keoni on the left and me on the right.
