as a kid i wanted to be many things. a cowboy was one of them (yup, i've watched a lot of john wayne movies and such). i didn't really like cows, but i loved the hats. and the attitude. i ended up at a rodeo last summer, and guess what... i saw real cowboys. well, they were high schoolers but they took themselves seriously. and so did the adults that were there. and so did i. and loved their hats. and the light. and i just kept taking picture after picture.
