The July 4 band was playing all the usual songs. I wandered around, like I always do, with a camera and an idea that maybe there’d be something that would look OK in a photo.
And, just three and a half years after I made this shot, I noticed that the instrument case says “It’s a Blessing” on it. (I’ll wait while you give the photo another look.) And that’s only my second favorite thing about it – I love how it’s obviously been used for years and has the scars and scruff marks to show for it.
