What model doesn’t want to be in Vogue? What photographer doesn’t want their work in it?

I want to thank Shalimar and Boomer for their modest degree of cooperation in this shoot.
New Salem Baptist Church in Sevierville. Earliest surviving brick church in the county. Fundraising for care and restoration has been going on for decades. Sevier County doesn’t really seem to care about history. Unless is pays.
Barns, storage, birdhouse on Gran‘s remaining acreage around 2005. Settled by her parents as part of the Homestead Act around the 1880’s. At the time I took these photos, the buildings were more than a century old and still solid and in use — literally across the road from the Smoky Mountain Park boundary. The livestock was gone but root vegetables were still sheltered there for winter use.
