a different view of the West ….

1939 Delage D8-120 Vanvooren Coupe

During the 2013 Concourse de Elegance at Pebble Beach, I found this absolutely beautiful classic parked in an area near the edge of the 18th green. It was late in the afternoon and the sun and clouds were dancing around in the sky which gave me a lot of opportunities for different exposures. In the end, I choose this view because the lines of the car and light coming off of the exhaust pipes gave it a sense of classic art deco.

In2013, we attended the Concourse de Elegance in Pebble Beach, a storied location that the location in itself is a fabulous place to visit. I took well over 1,000 photos for the 3 days were we there and knew that I was missing some of them. Today, I found a folder inside a folder that contained many that I was looking for. This photos is of a 1930’s era Bugatti that was a pure joy to see and photograph.

Driving into Dallas this afternoon, I come up beside this really bored looking Boxer with his head out of the window. I did not get a good look at the other side but looks like a Golden Retriever in the same position. I have been curious by the site of dogs hanging out of car windows and (other than the driver getting some fresh air) always curious about what the dog is seeing, sensing, feeling, etc!

Once upon a time, I was a young sailor and had always heard about the “Red sky at night…etc” and never really knew where the origin was. So after photographing the morning sky south of Alvarado, I did some research and came upon this explanation. BTW – a major cold front is due this is afternoon, although not as brutal as what our friends up north are now going through but it does explain the fabulous sunrise I witnessed today.
In order to understand why “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning” can predict the weather, we must understand more about weather and the colors in the sky. Read on –

Tuf Cooper is a 4X World Champion Roper and comes from a long line of Rodeo stars, His father, Roy is a 8X World Champion Roper and his brothers are top hands themselves. When his name was announced, you could hear the murmur in the area so I set my camera up behind 3 oder cowboys who were watching fro behind the chutes. When Tuf starts his warm up routine you can see all heads turn his way. He scored 8.0 seconds on this run and the closeted roper to him was 10.0 seconds.It was very obvious why he is the World Champion!

Over the next 2 weeks, the annual Fort Worth Stock Show is taking place and I will make a number of visits. Today, I came across the tie-down roping event which is pretty amazing and some of the top Cowboys in the US will be participating. In the photos above, I was sitting above the chutes and got some nice images, including a Father/Son day out at this event.
