PlainSky, Nebraskans: Young Cowboy, Harrison

Young Cowboy, Harrison

Young Cowboy, Harrison

This young man and I had a wonderful exchange of stories while I made images of him outside the Longhorn Saloon (a place with which I am very familiar). I was finding the shoot difficult, especially since he kept looking directly into the camera, destroying any chance of an unguarded moment captured, so I thanked him and said, “All done.”

I waited.

As he left the steps of the saloon, Dr. Pepper in hand, my composition came together, and I finally had my moment.
