    Bluesmen, eh? I wouldn't have guessed they were blues men, except for the neon. Poets, perhaps...

    aren't all bluesmen poets?

    This is part of my ongoing series of Blues photography -- Both of these guys are great at acoustic delta blues as well as an electric blues that is very powerful

    well, sure, there are all kinds of poets :) I meant that these blues men in particular, in my opinion, resemble academic poets more than bluesmen poets ;) I get the sense they may be discussing the philosophy of blues more than the way its soulfulness can knock you on your knees.

    This was taken during a blues competition -- one had a gig, the other was spectating, they play together often... I believe they were pontificating the spectacular specimen of female anatomy that has recently passed before them (talking about a hot chick) - or were just catching up on events...
