Welcome back to our new weekly blog series called “What’s In a Photograph?”
If you missed last week’s series introduction, you can read it here.
If you’ve ever been to a country square dance, you know that all you need to get folks dancing is a guitar and a fiddle, so it’s not a misnomer to label this pair an “orchestra”. If they know how to play – my money is betting they do, judging from the guitarist’s hat, and the way the fiddler is holding his bow – these two could swing the room into a frenzy. If you doubt the point, then, as the caption suggests, check out the sweat-soaked shirt of the guy to the right. He’s been feeling it! Maybe, as the caption says, he’s the host. Or he might be a dancer who’s jotting down the phone number of someone sweet he just danced with. Can’t you just hear the caller: “Swing your partner, do-si-do, promenade and let her go.”
What do you see in these photographs?
