For Fun, Photo Story


What sort of things do you have coming outta the chute this week?

I hope your ride is smoother

than it was for these cowboys.
[Look underneath that bull. Do you see the cowboy boots, spurs, and jean-clad legs all trying not to get trampled by hooves & snot & muscle & writhing mean?

Now, look at the boy’s face in the upper center-right of this image. His jaw is hanging low and his eyebrows are raised high.
I reckon he is glad to be riding only the fence rail.]

This (wannabe) photographer took over 100 images of BLURRY bull snot, cowboys, bucking horses, and all things rodeo. I reckon I should have checked my settings (and perhaps read my manual some) before clickety-clicking for hours Friday night. Hard lesson learned. Although not nearly as hard as some wild falls I saw. God bless the cowboy, he is a special sorta breed of all things tough.

  1. Cool… I actually LIKE the blur in these photos. Sure it could be a little clearer, but it shows the extreme motion of the bulls. pretty cool…

  2. I like the blur, too … gives me a sense of the action. Hopefully, nothing that hard is coming at me this week.

  3. He is a tough breed!Delighted to meet you today! Hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. This looks like a refreshing place to get drenched in goodness.Splashin,Sara

  4. came back because I was thinking my comment didn't go.. I'm always clicking and getting sidetracked.and you know, I was going to say the same. I like the blur. I discovered the little running man setting for sports after messing up a few times at soccer games on my camera this past year. It's exciting that there is so much to learn , but daunting too.School has resume for my younger ones now too….so all things previously procrastinated are on the table and ready to get done. hope you are well.

If you have somethin' to say, I reckon this is where you should do it. (If you're a newbie hereabouts, your first comment will be held for approval - cuts down on spam.) Thank ye for chatting!
