Artist's Description

This Is Main Street, Stuttgart, Ark USA, 8:00am, Sunday Nov. 20, 2011. TOMORROW the Wings Over The Prairie Festival(duck festival to locals)and World’s Championship Duck Calling Contest starts setting up. I’ve tried to include the chalk markings on the street, showing where the 2 block long arts and crafts tent will go. It is massive! There will be thousands of people here by next Friday. It will run for several days, people from all over the world will be here. The sounds of duck calling will be everywhere, as contestants warm up before going onstage to compete for cash and prizes, or small children pretend to. Competition will be fierce. Callers come from all over the world. This has been an annual event for over 75 years, and is our time to shine. We are lucky that we still have a vital and beautiful downtown(all 4 blocks). So many small towns have lost theirs. Some of these buildings are over a hundred years old and immaculately maintained, with all their features and tin ceilings intact. . I’m sure its due in part to the Festival, its held downtown. But strong civic pride is the reason, too. We are very proud of our town. So, today, Main Street sleeps. But come tomorrow…. Taken this day with a Sanyo VPC-E2100.
