The Stranded Cow

Original photograph by Gary Feather
The Stranded Cow, in Paducah, Ky, is the home of the subject of my pixograph "Spider on Exhibit". Here Charlotte is free to spin and use the space between a window in the cafe and its screen to display her exhibit in Paducah's Lowertown Arts District.

This image has the wonderful feel of late summer sunshine and southern hospitality. It suggests an open invitation to make yourself at home on the wide front porch and enjoy a leisurely visit with friends or family.

And while you are there you can enjoy some quirky southern charm by learning the story of the cow that was stranded there, on the second story balcony, during the 1937 flood. Or you can just say "Hi!" to Charlotte for me.
