Meet high school seniors Sam Filous and Brandon Hollis, offensive linemen for Johnstown High School.
Also, meet Kilometer. 1700 pounds of raw Texas Longhorn.
My goal in the photo was to give the impression of raw power and strength. I don't know if that worked or not, but it was a great experience regardless of the photographic success. Ed Callan, the owner of Callan Cattle Co. was a huge help. He and I met before, to discuss the feasibility of the shoot. Once Brandon and Sam arrived, Ed gave us all a great safety speech, and made control of the situation his top priority. At no time did I ever feel like the situation was out of control or dangerous.
Aside from Brandon's mouth guard, which was chomped on by another cattle while we shot, everything went incredibly smooth.

I wasn't able to find the photo in our archives (a mess) so I took a photo of the photo and we ran the two images below the fold with the following text -
On Tuesday, Advocate photographer Jason Lenhart was out looking for feature photographs when he stumbled upon Robert Evans cleaning the front display window of Newark Family Shoes. Only after speaking with Evans did he learn that on November 10, 1971, an Advocate photographer photographed Evans doing the same thing.
Evans has worked in the store since 1960, when it was located at 25-27 South Park Place. In 1967 the store relocated to the King Building, currently the Chase Building, at 15 North Third Street. Evans assumed ownership of the shop in 1981 when it moved to its current location at 5 South Third.
"It's always been shoes." Evans said as he rushed around his shop on Wednesday. Evans estimates his age to be "Oh, somewhere around 50." Jason Lenhart/The Advocate
