Anita & a Kantale - Pasadena, CA

Anita with a sunny smile played the Finnish kantele - a lap harp - at the Pasadena Museum of History in the Finnish Folk Art Museum - 16 May 2010
I've been inspired by many bloggers to join the 100 Strangers series.

She's lovely with that beaming smile. But there's something about those slippers that makes this image so tender.

I lovely portrait in a very interesting looking Finnish museum! I love the weaving on the wall!

I've never been to the Finnish Museum...and my lineage is Finnish!!! My grandfather was Finnish...he immigrated here in the very early 1900's...

This reminds me that I used to have a pair of reindeer slippers. Hmmm... wonder what happened to them?

Mr. E in reindeer slippers? I would love to see that one!

Very nice! I've been contemplating this project, but still tend to take more candid shots rather than portraits.

I've never heard of a kantele before. I would love to hear one played!
