How does one sift through 100-odd photos and choose just four, say, to post? I can’t, and so you are being blessed with many more than four.
Yesterday I went to the 47th Annual Quesnel Rodeo – which forms part of British Columbia’s rodeo circuit. Wild Cow Milking and the Wild Horse Race were absolutely manic (and fun to watch) but my favourite event of the evening – photography-wise – was definitely the women’s Barrel Racing event. Here the ladies, junior girls and pee wees needed to race around three 45-gallon drums, in a clover leaf pattern, as fast as possible, with the fastest rider winning. There were time penalties for knocked-over barrels.
Of course, no series of my photographs would be complete without “people” photographs. As I said once before, if you know anyone featured here please let me know so that I can send them copies …
