Random find in the tiny town of Clifton, AZ in a small museum resides the high chair of Sandra Day O’Conner. Arizonans are so proud of the first woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court. I asked permission from the stoic caretaker to take the picture. Of all the mining subjects in the museum he wondered why I chose this object to photograph.
I wanted this picture to remind me that even one of the most influential women of my lifetime started the same way we all did. Our choices, our decisions, make us who we are. She is such an inspiration and example of responsible citizenship.
“Do the best you can in every task, no matter how unimportant it may seem at the time. No one learns more about a problem than the person at the bottom.” Sandra Day O’Conner.
