When photographing backyard chickens at the home of Kimberly and Jeremy Blough, I noticed their small red barn and asked “You wouldn’t happen to have a pitchfork, would you?”
“Actually, we do,” Jeremy told me, already knowing what kind of photograph I wanted to take.
Kimberly had a bundle of eggs in her hand and while my memory didn’t retain the perfect details of American Gothic (like which sides the man and woman stand on), we still made a fun portrait.
