The Charros

Click to enlarge
By this point in the day, one of the senior charros took a liking to me and Sylvia and we were brought through some gates into a room right behind the wall of the ring, so we were much closer to the action than any other spectator or photographer.

I could reach out and touch the animals as they passed by, if I were stupid enough to try it.

Passing bulls and horses threw dirt on me, a rush of wind would blow my hair--I could smell them and feel the ground shake. It was dangerous and exciting!

My final two photos in the next post.
