songs about roving, rambling and plain hard luck & photography from the other side …

on the corner with the lowdown blues

Standing on the corner with the lowdown blues / A great big hole in the bottom of my shoes / Honey let me be your salty dog / Let me be your salty dog / Or I won’t be your man at all / Honey let me be your salty dog (Flatt & Scruggs)

    My grandfather actually played music with Earl Scruggs a couple of times.

    Anyway,love the photo. It’s a world where everyone’s obsessed with dynamic range, but a lot of people have forgotten that light and shadow gives a photo soul.
