locate this image on the American Memory website by using search terms SPURS PIE I love everything about this photo - the shadow on the woodgrain of the porch, the elaborate stitching on the well-worn leather, the spurs, the fact that the denim cuffs are of different widths.

Photographer Russell Lee says that although the gent here is a farmer, he prefers to outfit himself according to his earlier job as a cowboy. Taken in 1940 in Pie Town, New Mexico.
