Walter Trout, guitar wizard

Had the pleasure of seeing Walter Trout and his band perform at Music City Roots, broadcast live from Franklin, TN. What a set! That’s him on the left of the photo below.

He began and ended the set with an incredible amount of energy, which is amazing for a guy who nearly died a couple of years ago. His skill with the guitar is impressive and creative. If you like the blues and guitar wizardry in general, be sure to check him out.

Carrier bow…

Here’s another look at that aircraft carrier mothballed at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. This time, it’s a look directly at the bow.DSC_1228

There’s plenty of air draft on such a ship, which means some clever engineering to keep it right side up. It’s always impressive to see such a massive structure up close. I’d like to see one moving at speed some day.

 

Carrier at rest…

There’s an aircraft carrier at rest in the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Been tied up there for several years now. Finally got around to taking some photos and video. Here’s some live footage with an American Airlines jet overhead:

Aircraft on final to Philadelphia International Airport pass overhead, which made for an interesting view. More photos from this visit to come soon. Stay tuned.

Elfreth’s Alley Snapshot

Here’s a quick look at Elfreth’s Alley in Philadelphia, PA, USA. This is a street from before the United States was a country, with some houses dating from about 1707.

This area of Philadelphia has plenty of construction going on at the moment. However, this alley will be preserved for years to come, which is a nice touch. If you’re passing by, this is worth a look.
