3rd Place "The Cowboys" starring John Wayne

Offspring #4 came to visit today. He tried to fix my lawn mower (I have a different lawn mower than Hubby does).

It couldn't be fixed without a part. I ordered the part and then remembered this challenge. I asked if he'd model. We didn't know if it would be inside or outside... he agreed.

He put on Hubby's clothing and we headed out.


I kept shouting out stuff like, "Oh my word, Son! That shadow!" "Wow! This will look great in black and white!"




He just stood there while I went on and on about the light.

He's used to it.

Poor, sweet guy.

I hope this does well... but either way... I had a great time with my son. That's a rarity lately since the Pandemic.

It was a good day.

BTW, in the moments after I asked him to model and he went to look through Hubby's clothing, I googled "Western Movie Poster" and... a John Wayne poster came up as the fifth image.

That's what we shot for. Please vote my image on the image quality, not on whether you approve of guns... or not.
Thank you.

Did you know that John Wayne and I were both born on May 26th?

There's your trivia for the day.

You're welcome.

Only 4 children? You obviously didnít predict the need for more models! Great shot. Love the shadow.

Congrats - I love your props. Interesting to read your comments to think that voters would vote it down because of the gun? A Western style movie shoot?? I am probably very naive ...
