Another similarity between music and art

It’s interesting that the pitches in music are represented from left to right. The low tones are on the left and the high tones are on the right. You can see this easily when you look at a piano where the keys on the left are lower and as you go to the right the pitches get higher.

The same is true when it comes to the visual. Histograms are a sort of “scale” showing the overall tones of a photograph. Again, the darker tones are on the left and the lighter tones are on the right. The similarity between visual tones and musical pitches is easy to see when you compare a histogram to an equalizer layout:


This old car was on a trailer in a parking lot. I love the gritty-ness and authenticity of it.
