The Power of a Vest
We’d like to say this photo is about more than a man and his hat and his vest. But it’s not. Sure, there’s a Jeep in the background (oh, you hadn’t noticed it at first either?), but this is about style. OK, we’ll call it Jeep style. Brian Kessler sent this pic in of his father, Richard. “I know this is a driveway shot,” Brian began. Brian, please. Man.
Hat. Vest. Jeep. No apologies needed. “The photo was taken at our house in Laramie, Wyoming, July 4, 1968,” when Brian was almost 4 years old, he said. The Jeep was an early-50s Willys wagon that “had really bad brakes. I remember my mom running into the garage door coming home from grocery shopping when I was around 6.” We’re not entirely sure it wasn’t because she fell under the spell of Man. Hat. Vest.
