A Musician’s Hands

john's hands b&w

Y’all know that I love photographing hands, I love the story they tell… whether they’re brand new or 100 years old; every hand tells a story.

Nathan and I were very lucky this past weekend to be invited by a good friend’s husband to watch him play with one of our favorite Texas musicians, Cory Morrow.

Those hands up there, they play a mean guitar.

That was one of the most fun evenings out that Nathan and I’ve had in a long time.  We listened to music, we ate fried pickles, drank cold beer, danced, listened to Texas Music and got to meet a man hug a  friend,  and watch him do what he loves and I have to tell y’all, he is pretty damn amazing.

It is a gift to watch people do what they love and that entire night was a gift to us.

      We used to go to Gruene Hall all the time in College and when we were first married. It was sooo much fun!

  5. I am fascinated by piano player hands. And that shot above is awesome. I miss live music — especially nights like a Shake Russell show. Like Elz, I can smell the beer now…
