The second full weekend of July means it's Elgin Stampede time. Four nights of activities include a kids' evening, a bull-riding evening, a Tough Enough to Wear Pink rodeo evening, and another rodeo evening. I am well aware that I need a better lens to capture low-light action, but I can't bring myself to fork over $1500 for one week a year. These are my favorites for 2018, some edited to make up for "soft" images. (There is no rhyme or reason to these images; Blogger is not very "user-friendly" when photos need to be rearranged.)

I'm falling behind in my plan to make a blog post at least once a month; I'll blame it on old age, busy-ness, and a bit of disorganization! So a long drive in the country (we have a lot of it around here) produced the images for this post: signs on private property. Because we are a hunting area, private landowners "mark their territory" with No Trespassing and No Hunting signs. As simple as the message is, it's available in a variety of presentations.
