Finding Jesus

35mm

Ironton, MO

2006-summer

The back story…This is “one of those places” that called to me from the road. Each time I would pass this place I would think to myself, Look at all that incredible junk! In the summer of 2006 a large storm cut a swath through the area knocking out power for several days. I was on one of my many trips down south delivering decorated dinnerware to Chanticleer Ceramics  in Ironton, Missouri. I had brought along a borrowed camera. When I stopped to take pictures I noticed the pole the storm had pushed over. As I framed the picture I could not believe the number of symbols; the more I looked the more I noticed. Funny thing, when I passed by two weeks later with more pottery, the pole had been removed.
