Weekly Photo Challenge: Harmony

This week’s photo challenge is to share a photo that is or makes us feel harmonious.

Harmony can be “the combination of simultaneously sounded musical notes to produce a pleasing effect” or “the state of being in agreement or concord”.

My first thought when I saw the subject of the challenge, was of my 82 year old piano. As I’m typing this I’m listening to Child No 2 playing it and singing, voice and keys in perfect harmony.

I fell in love with this piano when I first heard it’s rich, beautiful sound. It’s old and has been repaired and lots of pieces have been replaced but the sound is full and rounded. I love opening it up so the sound can travel and I can watch the keys and little hammers and pads move, seemingly randomly yet magically producing melody and chords by a well planned process of strings and hammers attached to keys that transports me to a place of complete harmony.
