From the Archives — A Cattle Auction in 1977

These photos, from July 6, 1977, were taken during a regularly-scheduled cattle auction held every week of the year in Shreveport, Louisiana.   They were generally serious, but quiet affairs.   This speaks to what I preach today to young photographers about looking beyond big events.   All around us, in every community in the world, things are happening that tell residents about the goings-on their area.   Look beyond the expected.   These were taken back in my days at the Shreveport Journal, the best newspaper on the planet.
