This week's tune, What a Wonderful World....a beautiful song. There are songs I hear and think "if I never hear this song again, it will fine and dandy". This is not one of those songs. I think it's a song almost anyone can emotionally attach to. When I was a music teacher I often taught it to my 2nd graders. Kids singing this song, definitely a grab the tissue moment for most adults.
The other evening on my way home from work I was stumped for a photo of the day for my 365. After dark. Eeeeek. Not a good scenario. I walked along Main Street and through a large window happened upon a busy gallery. Opening night for a showing called "100 Birds for Haiti".
I was shooting from outside and thought-"D'oh, I could go inside". Honestly, my brain is not functioning well these days. Glad I did. Turns out local artists were asked to paint a bird or birds on a small format canvas like 5 x5 or 4x6. 100 pieces were collected and put on display.
Opening Night BW
Each painting is priced at $100. Half of the money will be retained by the artist, with the other half going to Haiti to help with the continuing need there.
On the Bar
I think that's a pretty cool idea, and hope they can raise the funds they want to. If I were in a better place financially I'd purchase one. This is another testament to "What a Wonderful World" we live in. At times I think the corporate world can't see what artists, starving artists, contribute to it.
In case you're curious about my 365 I went for this shot I took next door at the barbershop. And no, I didn't go inside this place.
Friday Night 76/365
I love how that boy is contemplating whether or not his world is going to be wonderful after the barber finishes with him.
Happy Sunday to you.
