I was in Paxico, Kansas, photographing a story on the role that bars play in small town America-how they become social gathering centers for the entire community. I had gone there a couple of times, photographing the old men playing cards and the kids coming by after school. I needed to go there on a Saturday night. The bar was packed with people of all ages enjoying their weekend. This one girl was shooting pool most of the evening and sat down and took a break from the only game in town.
