A sequence of events


Rodeos are fast paced to say the least. It’s rapid fire ballet of man and beast that comes at you hot, heavy and dusty. As I plow through the 2,000 shots from a week ago (and I am bleary eyed from the ordeal) I’ve chosen one sequence from the many I photographed that day. I selected this one because of the billowing dirt through which you’ll see this iconic slice of western Americana.









This is an experiment of sorts, one in which you’ll have to endure a herd of images to get the full picture. You could argue that this story would best be presented in a short video. Alas, that learning process lingers about half way down my lengthy to-do list.

Thanks Inez.

Your prose is apt commentary on the rodeo photographs, only to be outweighed by your patience in shooting and going through 2,000 photographs! Holy cow (or rodeo rider). Well done, Steve! We look forward to more in the series, and the day when you venture into video!

Nice sequence, Steve. I still haven't gotten all of the dust out of my eyes from that fine, hot day!
