Every week we select a new theme, and then go out and shoot that theme. This week the theme is Sweet. As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.

Show us Sweet!

Here are the rules:
1. Shots need to be taken between Monday Sunset and the following Monday by Sunset (Whenever that is for you ). Because this activity is supposed to encourage us to get out and shoot, please don't post old shots from your archives. Snapshots and art are equally welcome -- just get out & shoot, and then share!
2. Post your shots at any time during the week.
3. Post a maximum of two shots if you're uploading them to POTN (i.e., attaching them). You can post more than two if you're linking to shots that are not hosted by POTN (i.e. embedding them) but keep within POTN rules. Also keep within POTN rules about size. A copy of the size rules can be found here: IMAGE POSTING RULES
That's it! Have fun! As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.
An index to previous weeks can be found here: POTN WORLDWIDE PHOTO WEEK INDEX

That's it!
Have fun!

Thank you very much. From image quality perspective, neither are good, but I thought they fit the topic.

Vandoren's are the sweetest clarinet reeds... My sweet mouthpiece plays its sweetest when the reed is at a certain thickness and density, so we adjust them with these sweet tools. It is a sweetening of the reed. You must start on a stiffer reed than the mouthpiece with play with, then some of the material is removed from the bottom, branded side of the reed with the flat frosted glass; the top curved/lofted surface is sweetened by the frosted glass rod. Just a gentle rubbing, as the goal is to remove one layer of cane cells at a time. The frosted glass is very efficient at this task... some people use sand paper and/or reed rush to adjust the cane.

That's a nice mouth piece there!
Love Pete Fountain ;-)a

Thanks for the explanation. I knew reed players almost always have a reed in their mouth to keep them supple.
I didn't know about the "sweetener"  :p

I knew a guy at the music shop then, he gave me a sweet deal on the Pete Fountain signature, the Italian wooden and a rubber jazz mouthpiece all together. It was basically better than 3 for 1. Spent a few hours trying out what they had.
