Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.


It's been some time since I posted a musical interlude on the blog, and I happened to run across this video. I like Jethro Tull quite a bit, though I am not what you would call a rabid fan. However, I think this tune has something for everyone, no matter what kind of music you like. It's got some rock, some jazz, some classical moments.....I don't know, but I find it hard not to like!

One of the great Jethro Tull stories is that Ian Anderson oroginally wanted to be a rock guitarist. But after learning guitar, he heard Clapton and Hendrix play and came to the realization that he would never be able to master the instrument in the way they had. So he decided to take up another instrument. The flute.....he would become rock's greatest flutist. There pretty much weren't any other flutists or bands using the flute as one of their main instruments, so he could be the best and the worst at the same time. The rest is history. At least that's the story I've heard

My biggest question though, is how does he do it on one leg??????
