Drum Circle

Last week my friend Geva invited me to photograph a drum circle.  Not sure what I was expecting, but this was quite incredible.  There were all ages at this circle, from the very young to they very young at heart.  My friend was drumming and I was quite intrigued, because I know from reading her book she started out not understanding how to get the rhythms from her drum.  As I listened to the beats they were so uplifting and colorful  and I really wanted to be a part of it, but I can tell you I would have been out of my comfort zone on this one.  As a creative, I’m quite musical, but singing was always my forte.  Being classically trained I tend to even over think that.  So instead of joining in, I listened and tried to capture the rhythm with my camera.  Maybe someday I will go again and attempt to strike up a beat with the group.  But for now I will hear it in my photographs.
