life through a viewfinder

a walk in the woods

Today I was introduced to one of the most amazing people I’ve met since I came to Owensboro a month ago.


Meet I.E. Badger, a former art teacher in Hancock County.


Badger lives with her dog, Fella, in a small cabin in Hawesville. Her house is full of colors and trinkets, and lit by sunlight. It was one of the most beautiful and cozy homes I’ve ever been in.


Badger and I talked about our dogs while I played with Fella and his blue bunny (seen on the floor in the photo above).

“I don’t know what I’d do without him,” Badger said. “If he goes first, I tell you what… I’m going to grab his tail and go with him.”

“It’s something I have to do… I was there, too”
