After all that color, it seems a bit of behind the scenes black and white is in order.

Another shot from the archives on my daily photo blog When a Painter Snaps, which ran from 2010 through 2013. This post appeared on October 29, 2012. Here's what I had to say at the time:
This shot from my visit to the Nacional de Charro in Zacatecas, Mexico, in 2008, is an example of panning. I focused on the foreground horse, and moved along with it as it passed three or four feet in front of me. Having bucked off the Charro who attempted a bareback ride, this yegua is being steered to the exit gate, out of the ring, and back to the yeguada.
A big Thank You to all you wonderful friends and family members who wished us a Happy New Year and a Happy 27th Anniversary. Thea and I thoroughly enjoyed going over them together.
Today, we were paid a surprise visit by the Comanches! More on that tomorrow. With pictures.
