Faux Tintype, Part 4: Squibbin and the Rural Gandalf

Two of my most favorite lady-type persons on earth. Allesandra Bellos and Elizabeth Williams. And this incredibly tall bearded fella who approached me while shooting pictures at a farm-machinery show, introduced himself as “Boogie” (with the accent on the “boo”) and started up a lengthy conversation. Immensely tall, a little bent by time, and carrying (no kidding) a walking staff. Thought of a rural version of the Gandalf “You shall not pass!” meme. “Ain’t passin,’ ya varmint!”


Kristin Russell. “Writer, hair stylist, mom” and all-around lovely gal;)
