I've never heard a sound more incongruous or unexpectedly beautiful than this harpist playing by the departure gates at Philadelphia Airport. It echoed down the concourse and mixed with the sound of shuffling feet and rolling bags, a delightful surprise to travelers who do not expect to encounter anything but frustration and discomfort when they travel by air.

Location: Philadelphia International Airport
