5-17-Cowboy-bar-main-DG.jpgWhile I was making this portrait of tavern owner Shirley Smith in front of her Little Cowboy Bar in Fromberg, reporter Ed Kemmick was standing under the awning at the entrance. I looked out of the corner of my eye and saw this elderly cowboy, Guy Sowers using his cane to make his way up the boardwalk. I whispered loudly to Ed to move out of the way knowing that this Sowers would probably walk into my shot and add to the composition of this western theme. Ed moved, Shirley posed and Sowers walked right where I needed him to walk totally unaware that he was being photographed. Sometimes things just come together that help the photograph tell a more rounded story. I shot this with my Nikon D2X and my Nikkor 17-35mm lens.
