little cowboy

this little guy was at the rodeo in covelo. an indian town in northern california.
he had such an attitude. i have a front shot of him that is even better. i love
photographing the rodeo and all the things going on there. usually there is a carnival
or fair of some sort that is great for photos too.
i am in bed waiting for my husband to get out of the shower so we can watch a movie.
do men spend more time in the bathroom than women???
so with all this time i decided to post an image.
i have had such a desire to just take off in the car and go some place i haven't
been and take photos. i love the photo road trip. hmmmm gas is $3.34 here.
we will see how far i get.

this is one of my favorite images. pre-katrina new orleans, french quarter.
kodak 3200 with my trusty pentax me super and a 50mm lens.
printed on agfa paper no longer available.
i will post a few more from n.o.
i don't think i could have taken the same photos with my digital camera.
it just has a different feel. it's hard to describe. i thought that it had
something to do with not having a full frame image finder. but i got one and
that has not changed the feeling. i think it's better but still not the same
i do think that the best thing i can do is not look at the images after i shoot.
i think there is an artistic disconnect that happens when a person stops
to look at the images on the back of the camera. besides it looks goofy.
