Weekly Photo Challenge – Reflections



My offering this week was taken at the Weekend of Jazz at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs last April. The beautiful Sy Smith joined trumpeter Chris Botti for an unforgettable concert, and I was fortunate enough to be sitting close to the front of the performance hall to capture this shot. Our seventh year attending that event, I’m reflecting on the great times we’ve had there. We’re not returning this year – giving it a break – but hope to go back in the future.

The challenge this week could not have been more perfect for the photos I processed from last weekend. Peter and I went to the historic Mishawaka – a venue in the mountains on the Cache Le Poudre River west of Fort Collins. We attended a special concert featuring the Fort Collins Symphony and one of our favorite musical groups – Acoustic Eidolon. The Colorado based duo of Joe Scott and Hannah Alkire plays virtuoso Celtic music. They represent our fair state with their wonderful concerts around the globe.

Flute Dreams

Flute Dream

I dreamt of you last night
Your harmonic tones
filling my ears with cool vibrations

Jazz riffs in my mind
expressed through breath,
fingers moving to the Latin rhythm.
Manha de Carnival,
Autumn Leaves and
Blue Monk.

Bach, Handel, and Schumann
all floating through time and space
from notes on the page
to the sound of your silver.
