TAKE EIGHTY FIVE a

The Thursday Challenge prompt this week is MUSICAL.

Lucky I spotted this last week then...there are a great many memorial seats around Dunoon and Bute.  Generous and practical gifts with a purpose. Taken with the 'Nik' on auto.

























...but I also have this...

























That is my niece, Amy, who was born with many physical challenges but has prodigious musical talent.  The clarsach is only one of her instruments.  I took this with the Uniden digicam on long focus in low light without flash.

  3. I once bought a small clarsach for my daughter. She never mastered it, but my neighbor's daughter, who played the harpsichord figured it out and made it sound lovely.

  8. Hari Om and thank you all.

    Joanne - that doesn't surprise, same instrument in disguise!

    Magiceye - well it was a few years ago now...but there was also a handy pillar on the pew beside me...&*>

    Melody - actually I did take a long shot of the three in a row, but not so clear...the glaring light in Scotland is taking a bit of working with and I have yet to properly compensate for it!
