CHILD OF THE CHARREADA

Panasonic Lumix DMC – FZ30 / ACDSee Pro 6

Once again, a dive back into the archives of When a Painter Snaps:

I sometimes think the best part of my photographing rodeos, Charreadas (Mexican rodeos), and Jineteadas (Argentinian rodeos), and other horse events, is the children. There's something charming, beautiful and inherently wholesome about these children of the equine world.

This young lady rides in the opening ceremony with her big sister who is about to perform in Escaramusa, the side-saddle, all girl precision drill team.

Hasta mañana.

 

CONCENTRATION

CONCENTRATION / iPhone 6+ / Snapseed

Lost in thought. Observed, for an instant, from two sides. Indefinitely from one.

Even when taking a break from street shooting, I like shooting street. Coffee time in Mexico City, and I just could not stop.

More researching and organizing again today. Getting publishing figured out. I think.

Hasta mañana.

SKULL OF A YOUNG HORSE

SKULL OF A YOUNG HORSE / PhotoForge2 / iPhone 4s / 100 Cameras in One / Photo Toaster

Here's one from the archives. Having computer problems tonight, so this will be a short message.

Hasta Mañana

 

TAOS EVENING

TAOS EVENING / iPhoto 6+ / Snapseed / Front View

We were coming out of an opening at our dear friend Lanna Smith's gallery, The Ranch at Taos, recently, when a man crossed the street in front of us and mounted his bike. When his foot hit the brake, that red glow lighting up the adobe wall behind him caused me to grab my iPhone from my pocket and capture this quick shot just before he roared off into the night.

I especially like the red, yellow and blue primary colors in this nocturnal image.

Quite a contrast from yesterday's laundry room window. It's a bit grainy, but in the words of Chase Jarvis, “The best camera is the camera you have with you”. And that would always be my iPhone.

Hasta mañana

    FACE OF A SAINT XV / Daily Painting #1427

    Face of a Saint XV / Ink and Watercolor / 7 x 10 Inches / Daily Painting #1427

    Sorry, no video yet today. I keep finding neat new things I can do with it, and ways to make it better. The learning curve is a bit steeper than expected, too. Maybe tomorrow…

    Meanwhile, here's one that's just a bit different than the others. The face is still the thing, but I just couldn't ignore that great tin crown. Besides, it's a series, not a straight jacket, right? Who knows? This could even morph into larger paintings, including oils, and maybe full figures. I'm thinking of other possibilities, as well, but I'd better not spill the beans too soon…

      MASCARA TORO II / Daily Painting #1226

      Here's a companion piece for Mascara Toro, the earlier piece based on a Mexican Dance Mask from the beautiful Galeria Atotonilco to visit the amazing home, museum and showroom, all rolled into one. Works representing the crafts of all areas of Mexico, including textiles, masks, ceramics, paintings, sculpture, and more fill the museum. Fantastic.

      We had a slow day today. We got off to a late start, but had a nice lunch at the previously mentioned little bistro/café the name of which still escapes me. We walked around, exploring some new streets, sat for a while in the Jardin, people watching, then ended up at the Instituto Allende, for a nice dinner and some stirring Flamenco.

      A nice, slow day, ending with a great date in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato.

      ¡Hasta Mañana!
