PWP Week of August 9 2020

This week was a quite one.  Didn’t venture far from home until Saturday. My assistant the trail camera did an awesome job capturing deer and a fox.  On Saturday I went to the Kahkewistahaw Open rodeo.  Spent a wonderful afternoon.  I’ve posted some of the action here.  More will be posted on the Western Images page.  Check there for a complete collection.  Coming home I was fortune enough to come upon a two families of mule deer.  A buck was travelling with the one group.  Then a bit further up I came across a mother raccoon and a young one.  The young one disappeared into the crop fast but Mom was curious.  I hope you enjoy this week’s collection.  No flowers or pets!!  Till next week.

PWP Week of August 2, 2020

First week of August was a good week.  Our dahlias are blooming nicely.  They are such a wonderful flower to photograph.  I planted some mixed flower seeds and they are coming nicely also.  Anything is game around my house.  We have a raccoon with no tail (has been named Stubby) visiting the paddock across the road where Tansy lives during the day. He discovered the tub where her water is.  Sometimes there is water left in.  I’m not sure if the fox approves or not. We saw the doe and her fawn, which is really growing, one morning.  A new saddle was tried out on Jazz.  We both decided it looked good on her.  If you have read C.S.Lewis books you will recognize Aslan.  He was built in memory of a brave little boy that passed away.   I found some creative art work on a wall in a small town.  Sometimes the small towns have some very creative art work.  Yesterday I went to a rodeo.  Had a wonderful day.  Visited with friends.  Shot some great photos. The Western Images page will have new content and I have lots to do.  Hope you enjoy this week’s contribution.  The Flowers page had some new additions.

Western Images Page

It’s done.  I created a Western Images page.  To this page I will add photos from rodeos, barrel racing and other photos that reflect the name of the page.  When photos are added I will post here and say what event they were taken at.  The photos just added were taken at the Top Line Rodeo, held July 18 & 19 2020 at Clearview Arena.  This was the first rodeo in the Qu’Appelle Valley Open Rodeo Series 2020.  I hope you enjoy this new page. You can find it listed under Gallery.  Comment s are welcome.

PWP Week of July 26 2020

Happy August 1.  Happy long weekend to my Canadian friends.  And a good friend is celebrating a birthday.  Birthday wishes coming your way.

This week’s collection is mixture of images.  There was no travelling, spent some time in Studio 13.  Practicing with my Lensbaby Composer.  Our flowers are starting to bloom so I have lots to practice on.   I’ve included a few barrel racing and rodeo ones taken the weekend of July 18.  The one of the steer wrestle did quite well on Instagram. My assistant the Trail Camera caught an encounter between the resident fox and our visiting raccoon.

I’m thinking of creating a “Western Images” page of rodeo, barrel racing, western accessories and horses.  And a “Treasures and Keepsake” page.  I’ve included a few of these shots in this week’s collection.

PWP Week of July 19 2020

Another week in the book.  It was a hot humid one here.  The Boy and I spent a lot of time in the house.  Sunday wasn’t too bad, which was a good thing as I spent a few more hours photographing the rodeo slack.  Lots of pictures of cowgirls and cowboys riding gorgeous horses.  The trail camera did an awesome job of capturing our deer and the foxes that share space with us.  I did manage to get pictures myself of a doe and later two fawns.  Due to the high temperatures we spent some time creating in Studio 13.  I hope you enjoy this week’s photos.  We had fun taking them and editing them.  Till next week!

PWP Week of July 12 2020

This week marks the half way point of July.  Summer is going by really fast.  Most days the weather doesn’t realize it’s summer.  Nights and mornings are pretty cool.  The Boy and I went on a rode trip and broadened our horizons and add new content. Found some more wall murals in a small town.  These are pretty old but I think they are still wonderful. My assistant the trail camera took some wonderful shots of three whitetail does.  I’ve included quite a few of them as there are so beautiful.  Such big eyes. The first rodeo since Convid9 appeared happened this weekend.  I went and photographed some of the slack Saturday AM.  It was a night rodeo so that makes it a no go for me. I’ve included a few from the day.  Nice horses.  Good riders.   Hope you enjoy this weeks collection.
