George was 92 when I met him. He was born in a sod house and aimed to die in one. He lived alone in his sod house with only the lizards for company. I shot this scene in one long take. No special effects. Just the Lizard. George. Me. And Time.

Living in my wagon, I became fascinated with “framing” my world with this view. Here are some of these photos. Consider them pairs. The first picture is from inside, the next is of the outside scene.
