Live Bait

I love this ramshackle looking old bait store in Melbourne Beach, Florida; hand written signs, American flag, and all. It's out close to a park on the beach, on what is becoming a more and more fancy area.

Places like this are disappearing very, very fast around here.

As this area of Florida gets more and more upscale, the property taxes usually get impossibly high for the small guys like this in the end and they sell their place, only to have the new owners bulldoze it and put up something else, with more glitz and glamor.

Fancy isn't necessarily an improvement.

Fifty Dollar Guitar

Happy New Year to all of you. God bless you and give you a great 2009

This is a photo I took early one morning of a cheap guitar that I bought from a coworker. I still play it and on this morning it was sitting in the early morning light coming into our living room.

The grain of the mahogany guitar body and it's cherry sunburst finish were enhanced by the warm morning sunlight.

The whole story of why I bought this guitar is over at my other blog today.
