The Long Ride Home …

I just titled this ” The Long Ride Home ” for lack of anything better and it really does look like a long ride home.  This image was shot on 35mm Kodachrome back around 1957 or so.  The scene is somewhere out in Oklahoma, not exactly sure where.  Whenever I look at this image, I image it being around 1870, not in the 1950’s.  I have some other slides from this trip and I will go and see what I can find out about the location, etc.  The one thing that I can almost say for sure … it was hot.  I mean the 110 degrees in the shade type hot, so it must be 130 degrees and I do not see a tree in site.  Their faces are in deep shadow, so I do not have in detail in the faces.  Let me know what you think … I have a lot of these types of images that I plan on doing something with, I just have not figured out what.  Thanks for looking … Frank

PS – I had initially titled this image ” The Long Road Home “, but after looking at it for a real long time I never could find the road.  So I just changed the title to the long ride home for obvious reasons.
