Me and Papaw on Instagram

Sticky

Instagram is my jam! I work as my papaw’s daily care giver. He has dementia and needs help with a lot of every day stuff. Luckily, he loves music as much as I do and I spend a lot of time singing and playing guitar for him. Some of those moments get caught on video

and posted to Instagram.

The best way to view them on Android phones is to install the Flickr app because images don’t scale full screen in the browser. I’m working on a fix though.

Weekly Song Round Up (Or why there’s no progress this week.)

Standard

Well, there’s no audio clip with this week’s progress report… and that is because I did not make any significant progress on “Feelin’ the Wind.” Two solid weeks of making very little progress. – And why is that? Well, I’ve been pretty ill for the past couple weeks and had some other things I couldn’t not do, so something had to give. Last weekend I had a short set at the OE and this weekend I’m playing piano on a friend’s album.

Isadora and the Fridge

Standard

Isadora takes a peek inside papaw's ancient Frigidaire. (For new followers: my grandfather has dementia and I work as his care taker.) I'm pretty sure that before he developed dementia he was obsessive compulsive, (and well, I guess he still is. He's just not as good at OCD as he used to be.) For him, everything has to look exactly the same all the time. If anything is ever out of place or moved even a few inches from where it usually is, he panics. He has spent his entire life refusing to spend money on anything that's not absolutely essential and he's never discarded anything that was originally costly. Because of this, his home is rather spartan, but does contain an interesting collection of old, well preserved, weird stuff. : #antique #vintage #blackandwhite #fridgidaire #refrigerator #dementiacare #phonepic

Chris Brewer at the Oregon Express

Gallery

(See these photos on Flickr)

Got a few great pictures of Chris Brewer on Saturday at the Oregon Express. Usually, I think my concert photos aren’t very good, but I’m very happy with the ones I got of Chris this past Saturday at the gig we shared with Dave Berry. I’m especially happy about Continue reading

Old Caddy

Spotted in my Papaw’s neighbor’s garage. Shot with an early 1970’s Minolta Rokkor 50mm 1.7 lens adapted to Sony A7 mirrorless (digital) camera. I absolutely love vintage lenses on this camera. Some of the focusing features of the camera make for a very smooth shooting experience.
