I really don't know how someone like me, who takes so many photos each week, can't seem to post anything for that week! This past week has been our town's annual rodeo...called The Elgin Stampede. It began on Wednesday night with Family Night, 264 kids from age 2 to 18 competing in various rodeo-type events. Thursday night, it was bull riding, with 24 cowboys of all skill levels competing for big money; Friday and Saturday nights were the regular rodeo events--and it rained.
Before everything starts, one of my favorite photo opportunities is watching the rodeo stock--bucking horses and bulls--be unloaded from the trucks that transported them from the neighboring state. Once unloaded into pens, the horses are turned out to green pasture behind the rodeo grounds for two days, until it's their turn to "work." I've chosen one of those photos as #28 for Kent Weakley's P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday.
