I found this at a small antique shop in central Illinois. As I was paying the shop owner, he asked me the question that I always get from antique dealers. 'What kind of photos do you look for?". I looked at him and tried to come up with an easy explaination of vernacular photography. Instead of a long winded speech I just said to him "Photos that make you feel something".

That's what it's all about.

OK, someone explain this one to me
Is there some greater meaning here
Or are they just goofing around
And why do they both look so familiar

Hell

January 03, 2007

You die
You expect to be heading upwards
Towards heaven
But not you
You made a mistake
In your life
You said God Damn It
501 times
500 is the limit to get into heaven
You feel yourself being pulled downward
There are screams
Smoke, sulfer and flames
You find yourself in an office
The Devil's office
He's going over your file
He looks up and smiles
"Ha! I hope that last God Damn It was worth it"
He looks back down at your file
You have nothing better to do
So you look around his office
And then ... you notice his collection
His collection of clowns
It's then that you know
You're really in Hell

This morning I got a call from a writer who works for a national magazine. They're doing a story on vernacular photography. One of the questions he asked was "What is your favorite Bighappyfunhouse photo". When he asked me, I was scrolling though my archives looking for the perfect shot and... I found this. So rather than choosing some artsy fartsy - wonderful -first class - vernacular photograph for the whole world to see as a representation of my world class collection of vernacular photographs... A museum quality knock your socks off Dorothea Lange type photo.... No no, not me. I picked the guy holding the bologna.... The story of my life.
