Are You Recording?

Woodcut on sheet music.

 I was in an old school/ community art center this summer ( I used to take piano lessons there)  and heard this fabulous blues-rock guitar playing.  I followed the music and found this guy in a classroom playing away.  In haste, I tried to snap a few stolen photographs on my iphone when he looked over at the door.  I motioned to my phone as if to say, "Is this ok?"  He thought I was recording him playing... but assured him it was just a few shots I was after.  So, he invited me in...  asked a few more times if I had done an audio recording - because he felt he was making so many mistakes and did not want it remembered!  Too funny.  After explaining I'm an artist and also play guitar, etc. he was finally convinced I was harmless:)  We chatted for quite a while as I took a lot of photographs.  Turns out he teaches guitar there... I need to send him one of these!
