Flickr Find: Accordion Blues

Man in underwear playing accordionlow down accordion blues, uploaded by aokeh

A man passionately playing the accordion in his underwear, another guy looking incredibly bored, an ironing board covered with newspapers, food, and what appears to be a bottle of gin… I have no idea what’s going on in this photo, but I love it.


  1. I subscribe to a flickr “accordion” tags feed and saw this pic yesterday. I LOVE it! It’s like a moment where life is being lived at its fullest. I flagged it as a fave immediately.

    By the way, Chris, love your accordion blog. Subscribed!

  2. Thanks Dave! (That’s how I found the photo, too; that feed pulls up some great stuff.)

  3. Good find. Seriously, worth a spot on the wall at home. What a great photograph.
