This is a popular and thrilling part of Charreada, the Leap of Death, in which the rider jumps from his own bareback horse onto the back of a galloping wild horse, also bareback.

A vintage charro photograph in the hotel in Morelia that I've been staying in for the past couple of days was the inspiration for this execise in filtering.

Hasta mañana.



  1. Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads
    up! Other then that, terrific blog!

    1. Thanks Neal. I appreciate the heads up re Explorer. I cranked up two pc machines and checked it out. No problem here. I’m reluctant to load Explorer on my Mac. Which system are you using?
      Thanks again,
