This is a photograph captured in August 2010 from beneath the bleachers at the Neshoba County Fair in Philadelphia, Mississippi, United States of America. The people sitting on the bleachers were watching horse races at the county fair. The scene caught my attention because it suggested to me a "slice of Americana" Norman Rockwell might have painted. Of particular note was the variety of footwear, ranging from well worn cowboy boots to flip flops. The various components of this image represents what one would expect to see at a rodeo or other activities in a rural Southern county fair environment, including a cup of lemonade and a bottle of Gatorade on the third from the bottom foot plank in the photograph. This photograph is from my self-published book entitled, "Very Close and Personal: Faces of the 2010 Neshoba County Fair."
