Way cool...its as big as he is!
Chris: And he knew how to play it well too!
How wonderful... and odd! Love your shot of him!
Chris: The harder you look the more you see I suppose Elizabeth, and because I have to take a picture today for tomorrow that is critical for me
he sure seems to be in his glory Chris... good capture... that is one big bass....petersmile
Chris: He was a professional musician Peter

Lousy muso, I suppose...
Chris: Nope - brilliant!

I bet the acoustic was great. I hope you joined in with the banjo to have a duet.....
Chris: Indeed so Astrid. To celebrate the birthday of W J Phillips (no relation) we played the Droitwich Sausage song together..

I like this new "yesterday" idea of yours - it feels very immediate, and will be nice challenge for you
Chris: It is just that Lisl. I wake every morning thinking what the heck am I going to photograph today!!
That is a very big double bass

and

Thank you
Chris: And he could play it well too

Yes, he should play a birthday greeting! The streetphotograph seems now to invade also private rooms?
Do you know the wonderful comic-tragic play "The Kontrabass"/The double Bass by Patrick Süsskind?
Chris: I do not know of this Philine but I will investigate before venturing out to see what awaits me today..
How fun to just happen upon such a scene, Chris. It reminds me of a garage and so is quite fitting for Sir Bill's birthday today! Wait till the man starts playing the banjo!
Chris: Thank you Ginnie: in life and photography we make our own good luck..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Der_Kontraba%C3%9F - a wonderful play - a blockbuster in Germany over many years!
Chris: Very interesting: thank you Philine

If I was even more talented than I am already, I would play the traingle in an orchestra; much easier to pack it away at the end of an evening and far easier to carry it on the bus.
Chris: If I played the triangle in an orchestra I would daydream and miss my one little "ting" in the musical piece being played
Wonderful find Chris. That had yesterday all wrapped up
Chris: It certainly did, thank you Janet
That is some instrument! What a lot of wood in that room
Chris: The man told me it used to be a shop Sarah
Perhaps as well, Chris, with a bit of work this could be a very nice room.
Chris: Got a spare £ million Frank? The house is for sale, he's bought a chapel to live in
He holds it like it is his woman Tiff.
Chris: Maybe he loves it Chad
How great was that, Chris! That would have made my day, especially if he let me have a go.
Chris: You are a hands on person Mary
nicely captured Chris
Chris: Thank you kindly Ronky
What an interesting moment to come across quite by chance. I see he has a picture on the shelf that appears to be somebody with a Double Bass also.
Chris: I think he's played it all his life Brian

The room was not so deserted, you were there and the other codger playing the double bass.
Chris: That is true Louis

He looks a character - did he play for you?
Chris: A few notes Anne but I wanted the visual stuff really
I see that he also has a rather more manipulable instrument!
Chris: I think I'd prefer to play the latter Tom

Chad's remark is interesting. In the play I mentioned we are witnesses of moving scenes of some erotic -sexual cohabitation between the musician and his instrument.
Chris: This element is what can heighten the quality of play I suspect Philine

There is nout as strange as folk.
Chris: NOWT - you effete southerner!
