Most often when I have the opportunity to take photos, I usually focus on
scenic photography.  My favorite subjects are barns, grist mills, coastal
and mountain scenery.  But when I considered this year’s theme for the
Second Spring Arts, “Music and the Mind,” I immediately thought of a
picture I had taken of a friend’s daughter playing the harp at one of our
church’s events.  The sound of the harp is especially soothing to the
soul, and has a peaceful quality like no other instrument. I tried to
capture that feeling of tranquility in this photo, and to use the light
shining on the harp to highlight the often underappreciated instrument –
the harp.
