I recently got to know a photojournalist whose pictures of Middle East conflict and life have appeared in major world publications. I asked him how to take a good picture and he told me, “Look for the light.” Tonight, I looked and took a couple shots of what I saw.
The musical Oklahoma! was remarkable not because of the depth of its story, but because of the joy openly displayed and the excitement it garnered from the audience. Musical theatre took off at this point, thanks to the talents and dedication of Messers Rodgers and Hammerstein. Oklahoma! is, perhaps, too cheery and too bright to truly reflect daily life, but Curly McLain’s opening song, “Oh What a Beautiful Mornin’,” certainly captured the beauty of today’s sunrise.
