Johnny Cash's Bedroom

Last week I had a chance to visit Johnny Cash's boyhood home in Dyess, Arkansas.  I'm a big fan and there was definitely some feeling of visiting hallowed ground for me but the history of the place is also fascinating.  A New Deal initiative to establish family farms from the overgrown Arkansas countryside, the Cash family was given 20 acres and a five room house.  At the end of three years, they had fed their family, paid off their $2300 debt to the government and owned the owned the home.

Six people shared the two bedrooms (and four beds) in the house.  Somehow Cash's bedroom was particularly fascinating to me.  The picture of the cross was framed by young Johnny himself and like much of the furnishings in the house donated back by the Cash family.  While, I'm not a religious person, somehow that cross spoke to me and Johnny Cash's story.

Mountain Running Monday Mt. Washington!

It's Mountain Running Monday and this weekend is the Mt. Washington Road Race at the Mt. Washington Auto Road!!! You don't see a lot of race photography in black and white, but this shot from 2013 of Sage Canaday at about 4.5 miles is one of my all time favs. Sage would finish 3rd with 1:03:39 that year after running a smoking 58:27 to take the win in 2012.

The Gate City Marathon

I had such a great time photographing the first ever Gate City Marathon in Nashua, NH last week!  The organizers did a fantastic job of putting this event together.   There were so organized and designed a really cool course that looped through the City.  Thanks to Michael Wade for recruiting me to photograph the race.  I was so glad to be able to document it!  Congratulations to Kevin McIntyre and Yuki Chorney on their individual wins and the Fleet Feet Sports Junior Elite team on taking first in the relay!

As always, you can find more images at www.joeviger.com.  The direct link to the race gallery is here.   Without further adieu... here are a few highlights!
