Elaine, I'm imagining how fun a portrait wall at your house would be after this month's challenge. Cute shot :) #1529759

Nothing beats a good old jam session to get things rolling. Excellent rendition Elaine. Tell us a little about that collection. An MP3 file with some music would be a cool link also. :o) #10707475

Thanks-it was very fun. Jim is my neighbor and LOVES guitars. In college, he was in a band called Trainwreck Radio and had some originals. He thinks there may be some links on MySpace...

Note that Train Wreck Radio was resurrected recently (with my husband as the singer, yes, you read that right), so you may only be able to bring up that cover band.

This was fun to do-he and his wife are hams in front of the camera. The only thing I wish I had done differently with this is moved the Jim on the right a little forward and to the left to fill the space better. This was a tough one though, because the room was so small. I was standing in their closet to take the picture!!! #10714377
