Busy Weekend

Sunday, my ranch rodeo team participated in our second event. We didn't come home with buckles but we did win purses! Yeah, how cool is that! I was proud of the girls and their hardwork. We had a great time and enjoyed ourselves. I want to thank KDW over at Blackjack Land & Cattle Co.. Her church put the rodeo on and they were great hosts. She made us feel very welcomed. Loved meeting a blogger buddy in person. She's so sweet.

Tonight I have photography class. The assignment was to take a picture like you normally do. So this is what I am submitting......

A picture of Sally. The husband keeps asking me why I am fascinated with taking eyeball pictures. He doesn't understand it. I told him I was trying to be artistic. You can imagine the look I got after that statement.

Now that I have to take pictures for class, I never find anything to shoot. It is very frustrating. I was cleaning the saddle Saturday and took this picture. I like the pattern of the seat.

And I have a thing for sepia right now. Just like the effect it has on the photo. But what do I know, really. But hopefully, I will be more knowledgeable after this class. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

**Don't forget to sign up for the giveaway if you haven't had the chance. Everyone needs a tiara!**

I think those two pictures are great. I'm a big fan of sepia too, especially because it makes things look a bit more old fashioned or western.

I love the way the pattern on that saddle is really visible... All quilted and soft looking.

I'm so jealous! You got to meet Kris! AND go to one of their church ranch rodeos!!! *swoon* I've SO wanted to go to one like that. I wish our churches here did something like that. I think that's the best! You girls look like you did pretty darn good!
Love the sepia too. I'm very into that also, especially with western type photos. Looks beautiful!
