This is new, but I have absolutely no recollection of its where and why, only of its how.

I suppose it underlines how I approach amateur (in its good sense) photography: instinctive reaction without much foreplay at all. Embarrassingly - perhaps - retrospections leads me to believe I did pretty much everything on that sort of emotional contract. Oh well; I survived without too much harm done to the horses.

Reminds me of the American version of Sam Haskins, Wingate Paine's shot at 1.13.

I told you, Oscar, we're both nuts!

Seriously, though, I've had an interest in this image for quite a long time, but for some reason I tended to put it off. It stands at the side of the field where Moira the horse also stands all day long. I had the camera with me the time before last, and when I finished feeding her I snapped the snap, as they say.

Funny thing; today, she was halfway down the field when she saw me, and decided to trot towards me, which she used to do until she took the carrots for granted. Not only did she trot today, but actually did one of those strange kicking things that horses sometimes do in rodeos. I was quite impressed.

Deep thinkers, horses.

No more to say here in North America. This one's from about 43 years ago.

Inception

Great composition; the upside down bike makes me think I'm looking at a raised bridge?

While doing some maintenance work (tightening the trussrod a wee bit with a bespoke wrench) a couple nights ago on one of my old geetars…

I sold my one and only guitar to another guy who probably had a tin ear too; at any rate, he never mentioned it at any later date. It was a black Silvestri made in Catania.

This pic has nothing to do with guitars:

A fellow I know is fond of guitars from small European makers, especially those made from ~1930 through the '60s. He has a number of Levins, which were made in Sweden. Dunno if he has a Silvestri but I'm sure he knows of them.

It was an inexpensive acoustic, don't forget; did they have electric ones in '48?

Self-explanatory and a very striking composition.

Yeah, there were electric guitars in 1948. Dunno about electric Silvestris, though…never heard of one. Merle Travis was playing a Bigsby solidbody by then:

The aforementioned Levins were fairly inexpensive too, but generally well made and (especially pre-1950) good sounding.

Found this just now - seems to have been a company that went through various iterations.

Could be that Snr. Peter Fiore may know something about them because of the Sicilian connection. Perhaps I should have hung on to it, at least until the Internet came along!
