It Ain’t No Woman Flesh And Blood

“… it’s that damned old rodeo,” sang Garth Brooks. And while he was singing abut it, Lisa Eisner was attending rodeos and snapping shots across the country. In her 2000 book, Rodeo Girl, we see glimpses of rodeo life, to which many folks are never privy.

However, I think most of us are familiar with this body language.

90s kicker fashion was hard to accept. Those uncomfortable buttoned tops that barely made it to your belly button, and the Rocky Mountain jeans that absolutely did.

Pair it with perms and vertical stripes, and you’re in like Flynn.

A sash means you’re somebody.

Hanging with friends in low places.

Don’t forget your skill set, girls!

Come back tomorrow for some backstage scenes!

Welcome back to vintage Kansas! Here, a cute pinafored threesome pose in front of non-GMO corn.

And below, you see a couple who were clearly fruitful and multiplied.

Not even a delicious fruit-filled cellar could make up for the treeless flatland of this barren landscape.

Vintage Scenes From Kansas, Part I

Today I thought I’d share a few great pics from one of my documentary photograph books, “Bust To Boom.” Love the girl cradling her lamb and the post-meal shot below.

I find the one below interesting because of the swell framed pin-up drinking soda (Did he seriously frame that?) and the phrase “checking his waybills.”
