Three guys (or more) with a guard rail near the rim of a canyon. For the road cutting through the shadow on the left to descend to the road winding along below on the left suggest – if they are the same rad – that where the shadow end with light is an entrance to a long branching canyon through which the road makes its way down and down to continue on the left. This is a rare instance of Horace shooting a candid on-the-road photograph which include other people – perhpas camera club members. The blue shirt, at least, of the man on the left, seen from behing, and his white hair might match the convivial man on the right of the portrait with Horace on the left. We have shown this before, but noting the coincidence, perhaps, print it here again. They do not seem to be the same canyon, but possibly the same northeast corner of Oregon where there is a splendid proliferation of semi-arid canyons. In the prortait photo below there is behind the fellows a hat resting on the truck’s hood. It would have made this comparison easier if that hat were the same as the man on the right of this scene is wearing. Then we could explain the other differences in what is being worn as, perhaps, related to the altitude or time of day. Or there may be more than three men involved in the occasion of this shot, for there is probably at least four in the other. The fourth one, of course or probably, is taking the photograph.
