[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This weeks theme, "Life Is" I find, can be so many things. We humans are so complex & different from each other, depending on our backgrounds, which country were we born in, the cultures & faiths we were brought up with, makes this particular theme an interesting one. I spied these two young cowboys at a local Rodeo, where they were really interested in who was competing & winning,& I thought they looked to me, liked future Rodeo stars learning that trade, hence the title, one never knows, they might end up as accountants, but I would sure hope they win a Top Rider, Gold buckle, somewhere along their journey.

This must be at the very beginning of the rodeo as those boys look very clean for now. Very nice capture of those boys especially in B&W with good details and contrast. Well done, tfs.

Hi Ronald, Nice expression in your note how you see the 'Life Is' and I like your title too. Well captured of these boy expressions before the rodeo. B/W conversion fits well in this moment of discussion between these boys. Great mood with nice b/w tones. Thank for sharing

Hi Ron..nice shot...well composed with nice tones and focus.

The one on the left makes it for me.
Neat touches with the tonal choice Ron.


Buckle up youngsters youre in for quite a ride. Life is indeed a journey and we need to do all we can to keep the younger generation in the saddle. Excellent detail and contrast, as well as the boys candid expression, helps make this a nice shot.

Hi Ronald.
Looks like these young fellows are in for a good ride well seen.
Cheers Dave.

Hello Ronald, these two youngsters are just at the start of their journey, let's hope that it is a good one.
I love their look with their new hats and new shirts!
Lovely shallow DoF with sharp details.
B/w was the perfect choice.
Tfs, regards Jean.
