Pic of the Week: God is Our Landlord

"This image brings me back to my childhood on a farm and among farm folks, back when photographs were only black and white. I love the details in this hard-working barnyard: the metal roof, the water trough, the wire fence, the bent gutter and the peeling paint. I also like the contrast between the cockiness of the rooster and the humble message on the barn. Or maybe it’s that both the rooster and the farmer are confident in their own place in the world - 
simple and profound."

This photograph was taken when Jim worked as photo editor for the Worthington (MN) Daily Globe, and is in his book, Minnesota: Images of Home. The book is available in trade and limited edition online and at the Brandenburg Gallery, Ely
