Calico Ghost Town Cowboy

Henry Fencepost
songwriter, singer, pianist, entertainer, cowboy

Henry entertained us while we were eating lunch.  He sang popular and original songs.  One song he wrote was called the "Whistle Song".   While he was playing it on the piano he told us he couldn't sing it anymore since he lost all his teeth!  We visited with him, I asked if I could take his photo and I told him I'd send him a copy.  In turn he gave us a free CD of his latest songs.  

(Don't you just love natural light for portraits!  The sun was out, but he was sitting in a shaded area with the sun streaming in perfectly to add dramatic shadows and contour to his face.)
