This is our entry in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Week 5 Photo – Music, guitar, instrument, men, coffee, etc..

During a street photography field trip to Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, we came across Jamey Turner playing his glass harp. From these stemmed glasses filled with water to various precise levels and strapped firmly to a simple table, he extracted beautiful classic and popular music with deft strokes of his fingers.
