TRIPLE AAA ROOT BEER - COTTONWOOD FALLS, KANSAS - 2009

A sudden pounding rainstorm had forced me off the road 75 miles south of Topeka Kansas. I took refuge in a local antique store in Cottonwood Falls. The owner looked a close relative to Willie Nelson. He gave me a tour of his antique store. The rain had now stopped and the sky was a bright blue. Around the back of the store, lurking in the shadows was a Triple AAA root beer sign affixed to the side of the building. The giant oak tree on the edge of his yard was blocking all of the light. Out of his pocket came a fancy motorized screw driver. He had the sign off the wall in no time. I had set up my camera toward the side of the store where the light was in full force. The sign was back on the building facing my camera in no time. After I shot the sign we sat down and talked. I listened for a few hours as he talked about what it was like growing up in a small town in Kansas. The time came to go as I packed up my camera and headed west. The Triple AAA root beer sign was the best shot of the trip.The image was shot using an 8”x20” view camera.
