I don't wanna come out and play! - One of the funniest moments at the rodeo was this one, when they opened the gate and the bronc decided not to come out. He just stood there. They finally shut the gate and then opened it up a few moments later and he stood there again for quite a while but then decided to commence bucking. The cowboy got to have another chance with a different horse, since so much of his 8 seconds was taken up with the horse just standing still --- which affected the cowboy's ability to get a high score.
Thanks for your warm response to my portrait of the cowboy. Many of you thought this man had a very interesting face with lots of character and I agree wholeheartedly. He was a wonderful guy to photograph. Some people just seem made for the camera, don't they?
My cold is not quite so miserable, so it looks like I'll live. My poor hubby has it now. Hope your week is going better than ours!
