This photograph of my cousin, Melanie Dyer, was taken in June 2007 at the Bohemian Caverns in Washington DC. Being respectful of the mood and atmosphere of a Jazz Club, I did not use a flash yet I was able to catch Melanie in motion during her solo. I thought it unusual at first to experience "Jazz Viola." But I realized that risk and diversity have the potential to create awesome Jazz. More about the story behind this photo is included in the writing that was also submitted with this project. Thanks Melanie!!
