Harp Levers and Strings

plucked strings vibrate
soft sweet notes drift upwardly
my soul sings along

Karen I had to see the full instrument and it was breath taking in that light .. it couldn't have been displayed more perfectly !
These shadows are unique : ) and beautiful in their own right .. such a contrast of hard metal to the over all warmth of the wood which seems to have a life of its own.
Joy : )

I'm hoping you'll produce a video of the music you play! happy SSS and have a great weekend.

The sweet sound of a stringed instrument, a pleasure for the player and the audience. The wood is of a fine grain, the wire strings beautiful d even the hardware is quite attractive. A wonderful post!

Nicely done. I like photos that provide close studies of something we might otherwise overlook.

That harp is gorgeous, and how I would love to hear you play. It reminds me of when I playd the hammered dulcimer.
