    Default Assignment #19: Music

    Music is a treasure, a love, and a delight. It clears peoples souls and lifts them high.
    - Bedouin Soundclash, Rodigan State Address

    Music is a part of all of our lives. It's the score in a movie, it's the radio in the car, it plays in stores and restaurants - even more than photography, music is an art form that fills the environments that we're in.

    For this assignment, bring music out of the background and find a way to photograph it. Performers and instruments are wonderful subjects, but there are others as well. Be creative and find a way to express music through your photos, no matter how you choose to show it.

    As always, new photographs are encouraged, so take this as an opportunity to experiment and even see a performer live. However, I do ask that you be mindful of other's rights to control their own image and respect those who don't want their photo taken or shown. Photos from your personal archives are also welcome, but please include a few words - or lyrics - about it.

    Make your camera sing!

    Default Brass band in the street

    This is what can happen when you carry your camera out shopping with you. I couldn't get close enough with the 14-42 kit lens to take this shot without cropping, but it was one I wanted (for the double reflections) as soon as I saw it.

    Sibelius is a Finnish composer who as been said to have been able put the essence of the Finnish spirit into music. (Wiki:"whose music played an important role in the formation of the Finnish national identity." This is the Sibelius monument in Helsinki. When the wind blows across the sculpture, it creates tones across the pipes. The sculpture to the right of the main sculpture is of Sibelius himself.

    Its a very nice post.I have read your information about the music.Music is an art form whose medium is sound.To many people in many cultures music is an important part of their way of life.I'll try and shoot something new for this assignment,but for now here is one a few months old.By all accounts there is no single and inter cultural universal concept defining what music might be.
