Our Saturday

We traveled to Hamilton for another NBBA bull futurity.  A friend was competing and we wanted to show our support.  Here are some pics I got.  Again, the light (or lack thereof!) of a covered arena makes for a challenging task.  I so wish I had the cool flashes and lens.  Oh, to dream...




I have to tell y'all what a stock contractor told me.  It made my day.  He has always been very supportive of my photography.  He told me he got in trouble with a very well known rodeo photographer the other day for complimenting me so much.  The photographer asked why he didn't say such nice things about his work.  He told the photographer that he's never said that about him cause he doesn't take as good of pictures as I do!!

And guess what, our friend won 4th place!  Go Lonesome Dove Ranch!!

Lol! Well at least that contractor put him straight!
Takin' pictures 'professionally' and all that is great, but sometimes it takes more than 'expertise' - it takes heart and soul and the ability to look beyond.
I know... because I have a fantastic photo of yours hangin' right on my living room wall!
It warms my heart every time I look at it, and I'm seriously thinking of moving it so I can see it at ALL times! ;) (it hangs over my chair, so I can't see it when I'm sittin' down... without getting a ctrick in my neck!)

Girl, those are awesome. My husband and I just watched your slide show twice. He was drooling of coarse, while I was saying, "Wow, she got some great pics, how does she get that great light with pictures in motion and so clear!!" But there were a few bulls, where I said, "Holy COW, LOOK at that thing standing on his front end!!" my husband said, "Yeah....it's got a lot of drop". well...it was cool!!!
