San Dimas Rodeo 2010 is just what it says – a gallery from the 2010 San Dimas, CA Rodeo.
I’m not going to rehash everything I said about the 2015 event in a past post – just click here if you want to read about the rodeo and here if you want to go straight to the San Dimas Rodeo2015 gallery.
All I’m going to do is invite you to check out the San Dimas Rodeo 2010 Gallery if you’d like to check it out. It’s a fun little diversion from whatever you might be doing…
Like the 2015 gallery, it’s all view only so I don’t run into any issues with releases, licensing, etc. As such, all of the images are straight from the camera.
It’s here for your enjoyment – and hopefully, you’ll check out some other galleries on Laughing Frog Images and perhaps buy a print or two to make you smile when you look at it (or cover up a hole in the wall!).
Think this might leave a mark?
I’d love to say that I got this image because I’m such a fantastic and skilled photographer (well, I might be something close to that, or so some might say).
The reality is that to get an image like this, several things have to come together. The right lens helps. So does the right angle – as you can never predict which way a bull is going to go, the right angle is really a bit of luck. The right lighting helps – I sat where I sat for optimal lighting, at least as long as the bull tossed the rider in the right direction, so perhaps the right lighting is a little bit of luck. Timing – well, one can argue that’s either skill or luck. Then, beyond the lens, and the lighting, and the timing, you need the event itself. That moment in time where it all comes together.
That day in October 2010, it all came together for this perhaps once in a lifetime image.
