This past Saturday my dad’s family came down to go roping with us in Casa Grande. The night turned out pretty well, with the exception of my camera not being charged… So, I only got a couple of pictures off. The camera lenses that I own doesn’t allow me to take very good action shots at night. Apparently, I need a lens that lets in more light and has a faster shutter speed, and then I will be able to take better action pictures(mine come out all blurry and the subjects look like ghosts). So, I rented this lens from the place I purchased my camera from to see if it would allow me to take the pictures I have been wanting to take. The lens was this big bulky and HEAVY lens (I looked like the paparazzi) , but was well worth it ( Even though I only got to take a handful of pictures, since I forgot to check my battery). So here are some of the pictures!
I love this picture because it totally describes a typical roping adventure with my dad’s family. David being a moron in the back seat(notice his bright white teeth, why can’t I have white teeth like that, I brush way more than he does!!), Tammy looking not too thrilled in the front, my dad taking money out from the ATM, and a small glimpse of the horse trailer going through the drive thru :).
Overall, the night went very well! Sam won 1st in the regular roping and 1st in the incentive, and my dad won 2nd in the regular roping and 2nd in the incentive. Sam also won this belt buckle for high point 4 and under!
