Cactus Jack

.
Meet Cactus Jack. He was busy selling
ribs the day we met, but he was happy to stop for a second so that I could grab this quick photo. I think he looks quite distinguished (and frankly much less garish, but don't let on I told you) in sepia, don't you?

I like those wild west cut out trees. If some day I have extra money - I may install a few in my yard. I grew up as a kid in Eastern Europe reading cowboys books and ended up living in America. I like this kind of "art" - makes me smile.

He does look quite friendly in Sepia. It's nice that the soldiers in Israel get to go home often. I imagine that you've lived with war so long it is part of life. I'm sure that doesn't make it any easier. War is war and it's never good.

The sepia brings out all the crinkles in his face.
Hmm...I just realized we often say wrinkles when we speak of womens faces and crinkles in men. :)
I agree with Ellie - it is Art.

Growing up in the west around men who worked ranches and farms I have to say that mere wood is much too soft a thing to carve into a true cowboy -- however this one does appear quite authentic, especially in sepia. That is generally what color such men are when they come in from riding the dusty range!

Great pictures. Thanks for visiting. Airsoft is like bb guns with plastic bb's. The boys have a war against the adult boys..

This 'cowboy' has been softened (actually tamed) by the sepia. It is okay that his color changed, but I would hope that his tangy BBQ sauce remains the red-orange color it has always been...

Mimi said...

Makes me think of the theme from "The Virginian"...and that's a long time ago!

A very good work of art.

Mojo said...

My kinda guy. And well rendered in sepia. Less garish? I'd have to see the full color version to say. But I'll take your word.

What a charming little man! I love the texture that you captured with the sepia tone.
Great pick for this week.
