What could be better than a slow leisurely ride along the back roads of the quiet countryside in East Tennessee? The dinner that awaits and the end of the ride.
As these three riders take off in the Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church’s Wagon Train ride, a small army of women are in the Church’s basement preparing meatloaf, fried chicken, cornbread and all sorts of fine food for when the riders return.
I look forward to the bi-annual Wagon Trains the church host. It is alway a challenge for me, as I try to photograph all the rides and their mounts or wagons. Then I try to photograph those behind the scenes and as they enjoy a great meal. A hards day work, and that is before I set down and process 300+ RAW images on a slow and old computer.
It is worth the time and effort to me when I see the comments, shares and view count increase. I know I have captured memories that one day will bring a smile to someones face as they say, I remember that.
