    1. Brooke, thank you so much! My photo was taken in Ft. Worth at the Stockyards. We were looking around and wandered in to a demonstration about cowboy life on the trail. This guy was one of the cowhands. I was snapping photos and he looked at me just as I snapped. It turned out to be one of those photos that you get when you least expect it! :-) Thank you again and have a great day!

Fort Worth still has restaurants where you can tie up your horse while you go in and eat, so you will see horses tied up at different restaurants downtown. :-) Thank you again and have a great day!

    1. Kim, thank you so much! I took this photo at the Fort Worth Stockyards in Ft. Worth, TX. We were looking around and wandered into a demonstration about cowboy life on the trail.

It turned out to be one of those photos that you get when you least expect it! :-) I presume he works on a ranch since he was helping move the cattle. It was so very hot that day and I almost pulled this picture in to PSE to remove the sweat, but then decided not to. I felt it added a realness to leave it in. One of the interesting things about Fort Worth is that it still has restaurants where you can tie up your horse while you go in and eat, so you will see horses tied up at different restaurants downtown. :-) Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and thank you again!! Hugs!!

  12. There is so much character and personality in this image. It tells a story, but leaves us wanting to know more about the person behind the face and under the hat. Nice work.
