A couple of weeks ago J and his friends were setting balloons at Cowboy Mounted Shooting, and I got the unexpected assignment of photographing the riders when the regular photographer unexpectely could not be there. I’m not really properly equipped for this, nor do I have any experience with this kind of photography, so it was a bit of a challenge for me – one I was excited to take on and to the best I could.
It was really a learning experience as I worked to follow the riders, keep the focus on the rider/horse and snap a few photos that weren’t boring repeats of themselves.
I’m sorry the photos are so small. There have been some changes at wordpress the past few weeks, and suddenly my photos don’t appear the same size I expected them to. I’ll have to explore this issue and see what I can do to get back to larger photos – which was one of the reasons I switched to wordpress several years ago.
We’re getting lots of thunder storms these days here, including hail and heavy rain. Keeps me from having to water the garden as often, so I won’t complain too much. Although I admit I don’t like what the hail does to my flowers.
J got back from camp last Friday and has been go-go-going ever since. I think he’s ready for some down time to come his way soon. Tomorrow will be his day, I think.
