The corn man can?

Kettle Corn Man Kettle Corn Man

ISO 200
f12
exp 1/80

I added a curves layer to lighten the midtones and a very light shadow/highlight layer to increase the midtone contrast.

Otherwise, just a crop and a frame.

If you didn't get your fair share of personality, this man took it.


Taken at the Platteville encampment last Saturday. This guy was pretty cool. I am a bad journalist though, I don't remember what happened to his arm nor what his name was.

Did you also happen to see that he and his wife were playing cribbage? He actually had a little stand where he would set his cards rather then try to hold them. I watched them play for a minute and they didn't actually count, so I figured they must have been playing together for quite some time. But then he paused to think for a minute and his wife said "25, dear." It was so cute. Especially because then he laid down a 6 for 31.

So, did you just walk up to this dude and say "hey can I take your picture?"

Now I've got a made-up song "cornman" in my head... to the tune of "spoonman".

CORNMAN

lady_fox and smed wanted kettle corn. I was following in my photograoher daze and saw him. I did ask if I could take some pictures after we talked about missing limbs and who lost what and how.

Fry the kernels with your hook
Lick your fingers while you can, cornman
Follow the recipe from your book
Love your fingers while you can, cornman

Cornman, kill the fingers on your hand
Save me, I'm bleeding with your plan
Save me.
