One man and his dog!

Skelly was here on holiday with his lovely partner Sandra and their dog Sam. This is him playing a 150 year old Concertina. The instrument is a a free-reed musical instrument, like the various accordions and the harmonica and was developed in England and Gerrmany. Skelly learnt to play this after a bet in a pub, and he's pretty bloody good. I like this shot as he's a cornish boy, in front of an old cornish cottage with his good old dog, playing some old tunes on his old Concertina. If you want to say hi to Skelly you can catch him at Gulf Stream Surfboards in Devon where apparently, the place is currently stacked out with beautiful twin keeled fishes.

Great photo. Reminiscent of the old cornish postcards. It captures a candid moment in somebody's day.
