Chair & Shoes 1969
This was my first fine-art image in what would become the Mountain People Portfolio.
A friend and I were hiking a side spur off the Appalachian Trail when we spotted an old abandoned mountain cabin along a small stream. It was as if the folks had just walked away and left everything where it was. I captured quite a number of fine images at this site. One could just imagine the old fellow sitting out on that front porch passing the time of day.
This image always stood out when I displayed my work in a gallery or an invitational show.
I did pick up some trash and re-arranged the shoes slightly but the concept did not change.
