Oddshots Monday > Tin Bass
This photo has a fair amount of oddness about it. For starters, there's the listing perspective (made possible by a flipout viewscreen). Then there's the fact that my pal made this two-stringed acoustic bass out of a trash can and some scrap lumber. And he's playing jazz on it with a fiddle bow. The rope is a strap so he can use it in a marching band setting (he came walking up my driveway thumping out the bass line from Sunshine Of Your Love). But what I really like about this image is the look on his wife's face. They've been married a long time and she loves him still, not despite his eccentricities but because of them. This would make a fine picture to post on Valentine's Day but I can't wait that long.
