Long time no blog. I guess I needed a break, an unexpected one. Nothing happened really, I just haven’t feel like posting. But let’s put that behind us now, shall we? Let’s get back to the picture show. I promised rodeo shots and I’m here to deliver.
Have you heard of the Pendleton Round-up? It’s actually a bit of a historical Oregon tradition. It’s been happening yearly for a 101 years. Pretty amazing, huh? This is the West, after all, and it’s still a bit Wild. (Dorky, I know. I couldn’t help myself!)
They had a parade before things got started. Aren’t these old wagons great?
And off we go! Check out the colorful starting pens.
Occasionally, a horse got loose and things had to stop until they got it under control again.
That’s Ms. Rodeo Oregon. I liked her hat!
The people-watching was just as entertaining as the rodeo.
This was my first time. The weather was amazing. Warm and sunny the whole time. Could not have asked for better weather.
I shot a roll of B&W while I was there. So this rodeo tour ain’t over yet, cowboys and girls. See you again soon. Thanks for visiting!
(this is my 101st post! whoa!)
