Play Your Didgeridoo, Blue


Remember, 'Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport'????  There's a line that goes, 'Play your didgeridoo, Blue'.  This is a didgeridoo.  It is basically a hollowed out log.  The 'real' ones are hollowed out by termites, so we were told.  The ones made for tourists are not and are colorfully painted.  It was amazing how many different sounds he produced.  Now for a few behind the scenes snaps:

Nice looking accompanist!

And one for the grandkids back home!
(I was shooting in bright midday sun,  trying to get a clear shot amid dozens of tourists, so not great technically, but sometimes the subject is more important than the technicalities!)

Too bad this wasn't a video so we could hear it too . . . especially when Elder Larsen was playing it. Nice shots. More coveting going on here now though.

That lyrics to that tune triggered the music immediately. And now I have a great visual image to go with it.
