Trip photos

Did I mention I am actually getting somewhere with the harmonica? I have a growing collection of harps, and truly appreciate the genius of Little Walter (Marion) Jacobs, Sonny Boy Williamson (Rice Miller), and Howlin' Wolf. I really dig the sound of the B flat harp and the low G. Man, if only I started with one of them instead of a C it may not have been 18 years since my last efforts.

Here are pictures. Enjoy, and send me a note if you dig 'em.
