Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

Change your perspective on something.

Thank you, Sara, for providing us with this challenge From Above. You are more than welcome to take a look at the other entries!

Update: my friend from The Life and Times of a Leo Woman has found more information: it seems to be a Hang Drum. Take a minute to listen to its voice…
