Main Street Etude #2


It's not as if much changes on Main Street. This chair sits in front of the Main Office, back under the overhang and just behind and to the right of the post. One could walk down Main Street at the right time each morning and, if the sun was bright, catch this dance frozen in nearly this position as it was on September 7th at 9:17:41 AM. In fact a similar shot catching the dance each day at just this moment would swing with the seasonal pitch of the earth's axis and dip twice before anyone moved the chair.

Thus, it was a great surprise when the order came. Nobody knows who issued the command.
