The first "character" I photographed at the Stock Show.
Whenever I'm in a large gathering place which attracts people from many backgrounds I'm constantly on alert for distinctive characters. Mr. Severs had made hundreds of sculptures from horseshoes, many of them quite complex. He said farriers from all over the country send him their used shoes. Most of them know his trailer and at events like the stock show they just "toss 'em in."
It was only after I got the photo up on my computer screen that I carefully read the sign. I guess I never thought of God as a hand forger--a new take on creation.
