Sometimes you hit the jack pot and others did all the work for you planted the most diverse species all together in one spot right in your neighborhood. Of course I can't give away where that is. This is a small sample of my most recent adventures into a hyper naturalistic environment. The light was of another worldly luminosity and I let my camera soak it up to the max. I felt like I was able to capture more then just the plants but also their aura.
"Who shot the rodeo clown" photography by Richard Schemmerer
Myth and showmanship meets every year in Pendelton. Testosterone levels are at a feverish pitch as men in chaps strut their beef past hungry eyes. A rodeo is a reenactment of a vital part of the American History that is now basically extinct.
Our roots serve us to remember that time will change no matter what and that what was once necessary is now outmoded. Masculinity issues have found new playgrounds on sports fields.
Nevertheless as the rodeo proofs some instincts never die in us and need to be reaffirmed and proofed as correct at least once a year.
