Cowboys and Pictures

May 6, 2014 § Leave a comment

Last weekend, I attended an annual event full of trick roping, gun slinging and horseshoe making. Add in a mix of old country music and Old West attire, and this is a great place for fun imagery.

The annual Cowboy Festival is an annual two day festival held at Melody Ranch movie studios, home to many productions over the decades here in Southern California. Performers entertained on stages throughout the venue, as well as milling about the “streets”.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the afternoon:
