on top of the bullpen at the houston rodeo. on assignment for the HCVB, i had been corralling myself around where the action was, in and around the bull riding area. i figured that these cowboys were the surliest of the bunch and if i wanted real rodeo action, thats where i’d find it. standing atop the fence and gate surrounding the bulls and riders, i turned to see what was happening to my left, and just as i spun around, this magic moment of color and design revealed itself for a few quick frames before disappearing into the chaos that is bull riding at the rodeo. it’s not the shot for the CVB, but it was for me!
