The Hydrant Pub
The photograph, TheHydrant Pub, was taken during a trip to Joseph, Oregon for the Oregon Mountain Cruise. I have been following my father to car shows for several years now to photograph him for my photographic book project entitled Carroll, Butch, Guy. This photo series has evolved into a portrait of my father with his unique flare and his consuming passions for restoring classic cars and collecting guns.
