The Original Maverick

by Terry

Samuel Maverick, a Texas cattleman in the mid 1800's. Mr. Maverick refused to brand his cattle. The shrewdness of his decision became evident at round-up time, when he declared that all unbranded cattle belonged to him! As a result of the ensuing uproar, ever after, unbranded cattle were referred to as mavericks. The meaning evolved to include people who refuse to be branded with stereotypes and live their lives on their own terms. When I found several old photos of Samuel Maverick online I decided I wanted to try to create the look of an old sepia-toned photo. Read more in my blog post.
