But it also made me think to somehow convince myself that now will someday be the past - can't quite accept that one - but even the everyday stuff will feel foreign and out of date one day - especially since I work in a profession that is so based in the past as it is. Working at a job that requires riding a horse to work is a bit old timey and I sometimes forget that. Looking at this photograph was like being in the future and looking back at a photograph of myself on my Pony now and made me feel that time is relevant yet so irrelevant. I feel I could just as easily be back there now and many days feel I am when I am cowboying with the crew south of Belvidere. So lucky to be able to travel between now and then daily.
I thank the Adam's museum in Deadwood for displaying this photograph and for the cowboy with his camera on horseback - and whoever photographed him. Love it. ©JEAN LAUGHTON
