Woody Guthrie’s musical parter, Cisco Houston, was a bit more polished than Woody in his solo efforts. Regardless, they made a good team until both, sadly, succumbed to illness early depriving us of their tremendous potential. Here is Cisco Houston’s terrific rendition of a classic folk song by Joe Hill. Thank you to Smithsonian Folkways Recordings for keeping this music alive!

Robert Frank, the celebrated photographyer, died on Monday at age 94. That’s a pretty good run. Probably his most highly regarded work, The Americans, is really worth examining. The images in this post are taken from it. You can find these and many more images at artstor.org, which is available through the library website. ?
This large frog, most likely a Cuban Tree Frog, surprised me by its presence as I found the trail blocked by a fallen palm frond. If you live in Florida you would understand the many variations of reptile and insect surprises.
Image inspired by the work of Robert Frank The pioneering documentary photographer/filmmaker Robert Frank (1924-2019) has died at the age of 94. His work, especially his 1959 book The Americans and his 1959 Beat Generation film Pull My Daisy written and narrated by Jack Kerouac, has been an inspiration to me as with so many other photographers and artists. The artist is gone but his work continues on. . . .
