Wow, this week is the halfway point for my year commitment to posting a door a week on Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors! This year is just flying by!
While I was at the Rodeo last week-end hanging around the stables photographing competitions, and candid portraits I noticed the stable doors, so of course this week I’m sharing Stable Doors and a very shy horse.
N°1005 -I couldn’t get this horse to stick its head out the door for the life of me! I think I needed to have a carrot or sugar cube instead of a camera.
I do love the bits and pieces hanging from the opened half of the door.

…and this blond beauty at N°1002 wasn’t shy about poking its head, and nose out to find out what the heck all the clicking was about. 🙂
This post is part of Norm 2.0’s Thursday Doors. If you love doors and would like to see the doors others are posting, or post doors you’ve photographed and join other door lovers from around the world click here.

This is an image from the Rodeo I attended recently. He has a great face for photography I thought.
It’s already week 18 of Monochrome Madness2! Time seems to pass so quickly each week. I barely made my entry to the challenge these last two weeks. I hope you have some time to click over to Leanne’s site and view the other entries. I’m sure you’ll find something you like, and lots of inspiration.

I spent the day at the San Benito County Rodeo yesterday, and really enjoyed the action, and skill of the riders.
I took two cameras; My D300s with my 80-200mm f/2.8 lens mounted, and my Df with the 24-70mm f/2.8 lens.
I ended up switching the lenses to the opposite cameras, so I could use higher ISO for faster shutter speed to stop the fast paced action, and not have much noise to worry about. The Df handles noise much better than the D300s with its older sensor.
I set my shooting mode in Continuous High and made over 650 images. A lot of those are “lead up to the shot” images and will be deleted. I’ve made my first pass at culling them, but did develop several along the way.
So hold on to yer hats Cowgirls, and Boys…here’s a small taste of the Rodeo.
BBQ Pit- The Tri-tip was tender, and delicious
Ten Gallon Hats
Cowgirl Barrel Racing- She cut that one pretty well I thought
Rough Stock Cowboy and his Lasso
A Flag Girl
Speedy Dismount- He was competing in the Calf Ropin’ Competition
Deep in Thought- Shortly before his turn to ride a Bucking Bull
There were bucking bulls, and broncos and team ropin too. It was an action packed day!
