Small town gathering place
Where's Old Man King?
Dry Ridge, KY, December 2008
This bench is reserved for Tom King, otherwise known as Old Man King. We were just passing through this small Kentucky town, so we didn't have the chance to hang around outside the convenience store that overlooks the gas bar and, across the parking lot, this old house. Otherwise, we might have met this obviously locally famous gentleman.
So I took this picture instead, confident that his absence from the frame took nothing away from his influence over this place - or over us as we continued our journey.
Your turn: This is another contribution toward Thematic Photographic's human-themed week. I warned you it would be different! Got anything different of your own to share? If so, please head here.
