Yes, I’ve gone back 6 years to find a photo for today! This was one of my most favorite photography days- being with family, staying at Yellowstone- and seeing my first rodeo since I was a very little girl! I haven’t been to a rodeo since then, even living in Prescott where rodeo is BIG. So here’s one of my 2014 rodeo shots in a 2020 painterly style:
The most exciting part of the fair for both of us was the mounted shooting competition. I had never seen anything like it and instantly loved it (once I figured out the guns shot blanks. . .). The riders compete in riding around the ring shooting at balloons. They have two guns in their holster- 5 shots each. They are timed and scored on how many balloons were popped in the shortest amount of time. The riders and horses were magnificent!
The highlight of last weekend was the rodeo- my Friday Find for the week. I hadn’t been to a rodeo since childhood and had forgotten what fun it could be.
There were bucking broncos. . .
And, of course, I love taking the detail shots.
But most of all, I loved watching Henry enjoying himself!
