Sorry for my hiatus for the past couple of days. I was doing a bit of “soul searching” if you will. At any rate you can check out my page for some updates about it, and it’ll explain some stuff. https://myownphotoproject.wordpress.com/2012/02/24/some-inspirational-stuff/
So, there’s that link.
So, with the story now. It’s long, but it’s worth it. This photo was taken at the KKPsi retreat we were just at. Over the summer, part of the chapter and some of the other marching band staff came up here for a few days, but I didn’t get to go because it was my last year of showing at the county fair. The group finally ascended to the top of the mountain, and everyone was taking pictures and such. There is a picture of my friend who passed away in September looking over her shoulder and smiling at the camera, and it’s a beautiful photo of her.
So when we climbed back up there, that’s what was on my mind, was that I was seeing what she had seen too. It made me feel closer to her. That’s why I love this photo.
I chose the title “At The Summit” as a play off of Robert W. Smith’s band piece “To The Summit!” We played it at our last band concert last semester in Alicia’s memory. It’s amazing because it was commissioned by the Southwest District of Kappa, so the melodic part in the middle is actually our hymn. What’s more amazing is that the solo is written for the French horn- Alicia’s instrument.
It’s amazing how everything tied together here.
And there is my story of this photo.
Here’s recording of “To The Summit!” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRphYoWAb5c
