About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Day Twentyfive:

This is a portrait of Greg Lago, Clayton, NY. I took it in his shop, Winged Bull Studio in Clayton. He is a wood engraver. Quite a lost art form. There is a surrealistic touch in much of his work that I love.
Below are two samples of his work.

With or without his artwork present, Lago is a source of inspiration. He and his wife Karen also run Teaism, a small tea garden behind Winged Bull that serves up great food, teas, wine & beer. It is a great place to be on lazy Summer afternoons in the Thousand Islands. I usually play guitar there for a couple of hours on Thursdays. Hopefully that trend will continue this Summer. I say hopefully because so much is up in the air with me.

Fernando Sor: Etude #2, Played by Gary walts ona Guild Mark V classical guitar.
