Dripping Springs Napping

A shot of a Rippy Ranch Supply employee enjoying some rays and taking a nap in the back of the building. Rippy Ranch supply is a really cool od store in the heart of Dripping Springs in the Texas Hill Country. Dave Wilson and I were shooting around the store and came across this scene and could not pass it up without a few shots. Dripping Springs is a great little town with one heck of a Barber Shop!  Dave and I both had to visit the Barber Shop while were in town, I missed it on my first trip.

Thanks for stopping!

Saddle Bronc Riding

Saddle Bronc Riding or Saddleback Bronco riding was one of the first events at the Wimberley July 4th Rodeo in Texas. Saddle bronc riding is a classic event, both a complement and contrast to the wilder spectacles of bareback riding and bull riding. This event requires strength to be sure, but the event also demands style, grace and precise timing. Dave Wilson and I shuffled around the rodeo arena getting the best vantage point for each event. Since this was the first event we still had some decent light to shoot with as the sun was just going down. Dave recently posted a similar shot of this same rider from the Rodeo, noting the determination in his face.

Thanks for stopping!
