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.
Just happened to be in downtown Dallas last Saturday and was taking photos of the ads that were on the side of the building and turned around to catch the reflection of the clouds on this building.
As I mentioned in my last post, there are hundreds of weddings each month in San Miguel de Allende and while wang around, I came across a number of photographers plying their trade.
San Miguel de Allende is a very festive town. We were told that there were literally hundreds of weddings there every month and lots of festivals and celebrations. On this day we came across a parade in the remembrance of when this area was recognized as city. Each neighborhood had their own marketing band and in some cases, as here, costumed participants.
On the streets of San Miguel de Allende, I would come across scenes that may he hard for some not to ignore. Int his case, a mother selling trinkets and snacks while her daughter is asleep at he side. The local officials try to discourage this and the tourists walk across the street. I am an old softy from way back help if I can.
On the streets of San Miguel de Allende I found this lady selling, what looks like, gift for children.
Once again San Miguel de Allende proved to be a photographer’s dreamscape.
San Miguel de Allende, Mexico is alive with shops, galleries, restaurants plus a variety of local businesses. Around every corner is something different and in this case a gallery and boutique.
