Americana

I love the pictures here on Shorpy of the cityscapes - street pictures of large cities like Detroit, San Fran, Washington DC, etc. for the detail of the people and old buildings. But I think this picture might be the best I have ever seen. I mean, I am just mesmerized by everything in this picture - and everything that isn't: What is he looking at? Where is he going? Where is he from? What is he doing? All of it - I just love this picture. It is so Americana.

Rule of Thirds

Mastery.

Not Lonely

That Cowpoke looks so content in his element.

What a wonderful capture.
