Ride em Bulls

Rodeo events make for great picture taking. While covering last August’s Kitsap County Fair Rodeo Xtreme Bulls event I captured a picture I’ve been waiting for years to get. Normally, photographers always take photos of the cowboys riding the bulls and horses until they either get bucked off or reach the qualtilfiying time limit. Here, in one event I was able to get a shot of what seemed like a bull riding a cowboy after he was bucked off. Go figure, of getting a picture such as this. Needless to say, the cowboy wasn’t hurt, but he sure did get to the safety of the fence in record time.
