Photo Album:  Bob pix

--------------------------------------------------

Rick Lee took this picture in the Costco parking lot in Norfolk a few years back for an article that Cathy Britell wrote for Autoharpaholic -- that's the back of my trusty fan I'm leaning against.  Good times!

This one was taken in Finland aboard a tall ship called the Wappen during the Shantytour '97.  It was actually a pretty nice day, and a whole troupe of us had one of those Finnish saunas and jumped naked into the Baltic.  TMI. 

When I was in Bermuda in 1990 for the conclusion of the tall ship race -- and Op Sail 200 began -- I fulfilled a lifelong ambition to swim with my cetacean friends.  There's a story here, and one day I'll tell it on these pages ....

This one is from Annapolis MD, from pix taken for an article on music from the Chesapeake Bay.

The picture that appears on the cover of "It's About Time" was taken by famed Tidewater portraitist Bill McIntosh for a show he did featuring local folk.  I liked it so much, well, you know the rest! 

This is a composite I put together featuring two favorites -- my Hohner melodion, and CGC Sebago.  I made a song called "Ocean Station Bravo" about something that happened while I was serving as a sonarman aboard the Sebago from 1966-68.  She's part of a reef now, somewhere near Mobile.

Another composite, one that includes cittern, autoharp and concertina.  The concertina was made in 1887 or so, by Lachenal -- read about him and Charles Wheatstone here.

This one's from the Pilot Schooner Virginia at Norfolk Harborfest one year -- a happy day, with happy memories of seeing the schooner built, launched, and become a sailing stage! 

One of my very favorites, taken by Norfolk photographer Martin Smith-Rodden.  The picture in the background is of William Conrad Buhler, a.k.a. Ramblin' Conrad, taken sometime in his early childhood.  That's his guitar, too -- the one he'd slung over his back the night I met him, hitchhiking in the rain.  A moment that would change my life, and many other folk lovers in Hampton Roads ....
