he is not even 3. He likes to help me out at the ranch, and he knows his stuff.
today it was hot, so he took his shirt off and played in the hose, while he watered the horses for me. Hope you like it...this is b.'s baby....

chores to do..they all come running for a cool drink of fresh water..

building his coils

washing up, and the light was just right...something so simple,
and mundane..the moments that make an ordinary day..

I loved them all and hope you do too, which one is your pick?

I gottta say that the 1st one is my fav, he defently looks bad ass there with the hat on looking a bit tilted down, the only thing missing is the dirt on him (he looks a bit clean for cowboy :D)!

thse shots are really nice, if i was b. i would frame the 1st one. The kid is going to love that one and his future girl frenids will think he was sooooooooooo cute!

what lens was this taken with patti? Great DOF on the first image as well

Patti:

Excellent photos!

I like the last one best...it looks like he's showing off his "guns". :D

I noticed in your signature you list "ef 70-300 f/4-5.6"...how do you like this lens? I've been eyeing that one as I cannot afford a fancy "L" lens.

Nice pictures patti! I like the 3rd one best. He looks oblivious to the photo and I like the way you photographed him through the loops.

First and last are my fav's, you don't see a cowboy's eyes, his hat is always in the way :D

Very sharp pictures, good stuff

These are fabulous images. I imagine they'd be worth a bit as stock too, if you (and the hero of the hour) were happy to do that.

Very nice shots patti!!

Looks like little "Rawhide Bob" there has a career planned out already :-)

Hard to pick a favorite, because thay are all very "iconic" compositionally. Each with their own merits.

Great, great job!
