This original photograph was taken by award-winning photographer and Florida native W. Chris Fooshee. In our correspondence with him, Mr. Fooshee wrote that he took this photograph for the University of Florida during a cattle shoot west of Clermont, Florida, which is west of Orlando. The cowhand has his back to us and is leaning against an old weathered grey fence. He's wearing a blue plaid shirt and a wide-brim straw hat with a fancy band that has shiny oval conchos. To the upper right of his head there is a long strand of Spanish moss hanging down from a nearby tree. Lots of people are surprised to find out that there are cattle ranches and cowboys in Florida, when in fact, Florida has the longest history of cattle ranching of any state in the United States. Cattle arrived in Florida with the first Spanish settlers more than 400 years ago and organized ranching began with the founding of St. Augustine in 1565.

This original photograph is framed with a wide single-cut mat and a handsome, interesting frame made of honey colored wood faced with a 5/8 inch wide rounded strip of cork. Mounted on the paper dust cover on the back is a printed tag from Chris Fooshee that reads: PHOTOGraphics Traditional and Interprative {sic} Photography by W. Chris Fooshee http://photographics.phoosh.net. Above that is information on the care for the UV glass used. There's a wire installed and we've included a wall hanger and nail (not shown).

The framed size is 15 1/4 inches tall, 12 1/4 inches wide and about 3/4 inch thick. Sight size is 9 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 inches. Everything is in excellent condition, ready to hang. This vivid photograph will be treasured for many years to come.
