TRADER

TRADER / Taos, New Mexico / iPhone 6s Plus / Snapseed

Cousin Ann Lawrence and I visited the Millicent Rogers Museum Fall for Antiques Show and Sale, where the dealers are often as colorful as their wares.

 

MAN OF THE WEST

I spotted this fellow at the National Day of the Cowboy on the Mortenson Ranch, recently, with photographer friends Steve Immel and Steven Bundy.

 

TIME TO RIDE

A young bull rider prepares to mount an angry, uncooperative bull, a bull that's determined to get out of that buckin' chute, and out from under that rider.

 

 

COWBOY DRESSING ROOM

More from behind the scenes at this year's Taos Rodeo.

 

BULL RIDER MAKE-READY

Another found life of bull rider gear from the recent Taos Rodeo before we go to the action shots.

 

YOUNG CHARRO

YOUNG CHARRO / Panasonic DMC-FZ20 / ACDSee / Snapseed

The Mexican Charreada, like its American counterpart, the Rodeo, is a family affair. From toddlers to old timers, male and female participants, all engage in keeping their traditions alive. This is a common theme among horse cultures worldwide.

I photographed this handsome young horseman at the Lienzo Charro Constituyentes, in México, D. F., in 2011. This is a large arena, in a very large city, but it has a small town feel that I like, and I visit there often.
