Music to my eyes

by Michelle Keena July. 13, 2017 1344 views

Music has always been a constant staple in my life. I remember getting into trouble in kindergarten for singing in the restroom. Our class as I remember had restrooms in them and I used to sit in them and sing very loudly, disrupting the classroom. Truth is my singing skills are still a bit lacking. Since I cannot sing or play an instrument, I do know how to honor music by catching musicians in the good light. Musicians I do say have to be my favorite muses. Some pose when they see a camera. Some are nonchalant and keep right on playing and give great shots. What I also love is when the audience is getting involved in the music and they are up and dancing and I can get great action shots of them engaged and dancing. These are the best nights. This is what makes reviewing film like opening presents on Christmas morning! You sometimes just never know what you are going to see! So, I will just stick to taking photos but maybe loud off key singing could be the new rage one day and I could be the next "supastar".

Thank you Robert! Yes, I agree with on that.  Music does bring out all kinds of different emotions in people.  So glad I know so many musicians.  By the way, love your photos.
