An ongoing posting of work that may not exactly fit anywhere else, but still things I want seen.  It might be notes about road trips I've taken, the process of making the image, equipment used because what photographer isn't interested in that at some point, interesting lessons learned and who knows what else.

Local Rodeo

A few weeks ago, before the new job and while I was still enjoying a bit of new found freedom, I made a trip to New Mexico.  I can absolutely say that New Mexico is one of my favorite places to spend my time off.  Love the place, the people and the landscape.  

I planned to visit friends and ended up in Abiquiu' right around sundown.  I stumbled upon a small county rodeo taking place and I decided to stop in and see what I could see.  I paid the ten bucks to park and loaded the cameras on my shoulder and off I went.  I wasn't quite sure how close I would be able to get to anything but it turned out no one seemed to care at all.   The light was amazing so, I watched and I waited.  

The activity in the ring was just too far away, and I wasn't all that interested in that anyway.  But the activity around the entry to the ring was pretty frantic.  The light was great and I just spent time watching.  This is one of my favorite images from the hour or so I spent there before the light went away.
