A Hard Life

Cathy Ponton King, a great local singer/ guitarist, sent me this link to an outstanding set of color photographs taken by the Farm Security project at the same time the famous black and white shots were made.

This photograph, in particular, seemed apropos of the blog lately. The caption is from the story found in the Denver Post.

These are neat-- I looked them up. A few month ago I found the FSA photographs of Pietown, NM. Those are realy incredible, too... have you seen them?
