Jason's $2 Uke


I would've bought this ukulele at GIRO last weekend but Jason beat me to it by 60 seconds or so. All I could do was congratulate him on his find and help him wrangle it into tune. He then kindly played a bit while I snapped a totally unplanned addition to the Musician's Hands series. This is Number 7.

It's so tiny! Actually, the whole thing makes me thing of Tiny Tim. Your friend doesn't so Tiptoe Through The Tulips, does he?

Lovely lighting and composition, as we have come to expect from your work.

I know I have said it before but your close in images are you niche. Heart and soul goes intot these shots, and it shows.

Great picture. Wonderful hands.

The hands are glorious. I think I even detect the ingrained grime of hard labour.

Wonderful image and an engrossing series.
