For a long time, I’ve wanted to photograph the headstock of this guitar, at a certain time of the day when a faint stream of light makes its way through the back window of our house.

I’ve never bothered trying with my M9, because I knew it wouldn’t quite get it.

So yesterday I tried with my newly-acquired M3, as I was testing it for the first time.

To my eyes:  it got it.
