Project 52 Meets Calgary Stampede

Over the last few weeks, I have to admit that with school wrapping up and the end of my first trimester, I fell behind in my project 52. But this weekend I committed to catching up on most of the projects I had missed and what better opportunity than the Calgary Stampede.

Week 26: Mulligan: 

Mulligan is a golf term that means “do over”. So, I found one of my favourite shots of Kane from last year’s Stampede and then used my favourite little model to take a 2014 photo (or many!)

This year I bought my first “real” pair of Cowboy boots

These next photos are unrelated to my project 52, but each of these people were participating in their first ever Stampede.

Week 19: Rhythm

Getting the track ready. I see rhythm in the tractors, the crowd in the background and the cowboy hats in the foreground.

Week 25: Slow Down

These images were taken during the Chuckwagons using a slower shutter speed to demonstrate motion.

Another year, another Stampede. The cowboy boots will be put away until next year. Except Kane’s, he loves them and that hat! I was impressed at how interested he was in the whole thing. He was mesmerized by the rodeo and the chuckwagons. Whenever my hands were in the the way of his view he would knock them away!

Look Dad!

Look Dad!
