Serendipity plays a role in much of photography, however it requires a talented photographer to realize when an opportunity presents itself. In making this picture photographer Tom Wright capitalized on such an opportunity while traveling through Arkansas. Reminiscent of the nostalgic work of illustrator Norman Rockwell, this picture may be taken as a satire on the lifestyle of Americans emphasized visually by incorporating the famous illustrators look. It’s a wonderfully humorous yet poignant picture.
