forget summer arts festival

i took a drive over to forget sk.this eve to check out the festival. typical prairie gathering... run into lots of folks you haven't seen for while / great weather and great atmosphere.

i knew that "tramp" was gonna be in the area, as he's the base guy for the local legendary group called 'downwind'. i spotted him before show time, and asked if he could reflect a little light for my camera. i like the result.

kennedy saskatchewan rodeo

this is my portrait of a rodeo competitor from hardisty alberta. his name is keifer, and as it's noted on his belt buckle, he is/was the 'canadian international rodeo association' (cira), season leader last year / saddle bronc. (man, i hope i got all that info right / if not i'll take correction).

anyway.. i watched him hammer thru a few 8 sec rides, and altho i think he made the whistle on the last one, he got thrown over the fence. these guys just get up, dust off, and head to the next town. i'll do a documentary some day.....
