Calgary Stampede 19

You might want to click this for background music while you read this post.

One of the not-to-be-missed events at the Calgary Stampede is the afternoon rodeo. First time for me. I'm not well acquainted with horses in general. The last time I sat astride one was when I was 5 and my mother had my picture taken on a pony. I've ridden a camel more recently. Anyway, it was a terrific show, even if I had no appreciation for the finer points.

There are lots more rodeo pictures on my hard drive. (There are a lot more pictures of everything.) We're in Banff now,in the spectacular Canadian Rockies. Supposed to be rainy today but it might make for some moody, atmospheric shots.
