This is a fine portrait, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Ray, not the easiest of lighting, lots of shadows. I should have got his name, he was really good.
Music in the sun... I love acoustic music...
Frank L Croston.: Cant beat it, Larry, me too, a Sunday afternoon pleasure in summer here in Flagstaff.
He just always looks so cool! Great shot, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: He's a cool dude...I'm jealous. smile

I sent the link for this photo to my musician husband, and he's says he wishes we were there. Great shot!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, its one of the pleasures of living in Flagstaff that we sit in the sun listening to great musicians every week in summer, I wish I'd been a musician.

Great portrait and by what I read a good musician...but those fingernails sad and that cigarillo in his mouth.......
Try to find the name of the group on the internet and try that way to contact him....
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Astrid, I've tried that,no joy, I'm sure I'll see him again and find out.He may have come straight from work, as for smoking, well....
Astrid and I obviously think alike because one of the first things I noticed was his fingernails. sad Isn't it weird how some things can turn us off...even if he's "a good one." I'm not sure I'm proud of what that says about me. sad
Frank L Croston.: We all have our 'things', Ginnie, it doesn't make you a bad person! smile

I've not heard of of dobro before but having Googled it, I now now wiser. This guy looks to be lost in his own world smile
Frank L Croston.: One of my favourite instruments, Alan, he was enjoying himself.
Well chilled, I wish I had some musical ability.
Frank L Croston.: He is, yes, Martin me too.

Looks a great way to enjoy a sunny afternoon Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It is Anne, good food and drink, great atmosphere, right in the middle of downtown Flagstaff, right next to route 66! We love it. smile
He's multi-tasking with that cig. Good work in that difficult light.
Frank L Croston.: He coped very well, Mary, thanks, it is a difficult place to snap...smile

I like this portrait. Somehow, a bit 1970's.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Louis, I suppose it could be, it was a good decade.
Very good shot Frank, are these instruments not played like normal guitars?
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Brian, some have a square neck and raised strings and are played flat like this, others have a half round neck and normal strings and can be played either way. They are quite often played with a slide, they have a great sound.Well I think they do...smile

He looks supremely chilled, wish I could hear him too.
Frank L Croston.: He was, Mike, I think you would have enjoyed him and the band.
He looks vaguely like an actor I've seen playing disreputable individuals smile
Frank L Croston.: He could play that kind of part, Tom, though I'm sure he's not disreputable. smile

Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Sarah, it was, you just have to hope for the best at this place.
