HATS off to SHADOWS...

WEST TEXAS HATS
casting a BIG SHADOW...










A memaw and her little sweet grandgirl,
DEEDS....
sitting in the hot TEXAS sun,
watching another grandgirl riding and roping in
a college rodeo.
"FIVE  little grandgirls, lined in a row...  
IN the shadows and the shade
of the TEXAS RODEO."
 Grandgirl, COURTNEY, roping a calf.
I have posted this photo before..........not sure why I like it....but I do.
All the action was waaay too fast for my little point and shoot camera so
I had to be happy with the photo I got.
Normally, I would delete one like this....but...
just something about it.......
 PINK SATURDAY (only the PINKS of the faces and a tiny bit in the blur...)
SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY

Oh, BJ, I wish it was scratch and sniff too, but then I would seriously want a big bite or big bowl! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Thank you so much for linking to Potpourri Friday. Your participations makes the party more special!

Oh I love that action. So glad that you didn't delete it. I'd frame it!

Chris said...

Some beautiful grands you got there, girl. And having one of them in the rodeo, how cool is that. I love rodeos anyway, but I can't imagine how I could stand it watching my grand competing. Wait till I tell my grands about this.♥

Kelly said...

It must be rodeo season everywhere. We just had a rodeo come through our town recently too.

Debby said...

I like that photo. It looks really like modern art but you can still tell what it is. I can't believe you have a granddaughter that does that. I like all the girls lined up. So sweet.

I so agree, that photo is fabulous, great action, I also love the hat photo, and the one of you with your lovely grand daughtewr

NanaDiana said...

I love that last photo, too! I think it is because it is just a blur of speed and life moving! Love it. It's funny- I almost did a post on shadows tonight too...I will save it for another day~ Yours can't be beat! xo Diana

How fun to watch your GrandGals at the Rodeo. Never delete that photo...it's what we point and shooters call an Amazing Accident! Happy Pink Saturday!!!

Debbie said...

They're all lovely, but the action shot is awesome!

I agree BJ, there is something very pleasing about that photo. The blur of colors really show the action but I can still tell what it is! Happy Saturday:>)

Beautiful and very cute girls!
Great photos!

TexWisGirl said...

i very much like that shot too! sometimes the 'mistakes' are very artsy!

Ralph said...

This New Englander thinks of hats when thinking of the Lone Star. Hats, tall and with distinction, to keep the sun off on a hot and dusty day (of which you had so many this year). Cowboys and straw hats - our impressions of Texas up here...As hats are worn a lot by Patti these days, we are warming up to that style!

Nice shot in motion - I feel the movement, so no need to apologize - the effects are great!

Annabella said...

Great shadows and love the action shot. Happy SSS!

dana said...

HPS, BJ. This is just an adorable post....you are so lucky to have all of those grand girls...and they are so lucky to have you for their meemaw!!

I LOVE that action photo, too! It looks like you did a real creative Photoshoppy thing to it!! :)

Hope you got some rain!!

L, Dana

Neabear said...

To my fellow Texan, cute site!! Loved your photos. I am a new blogger and now I am following you. I'd love to have you follow back! Looking forward to more posts!

Jeanette said...

Nice pictures. The hat shadows are awesome. The hats are hanging but the shadows almost appear to be a person wearing a cowboy hat....intersting!

Jo's This and That said...

Great photos! Thanks for sharing!

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

I like your last photo.

Regards and best wishes

mississippi artist said...

Those Texas ten gallon hats cast a Huge shadow!Like the last shot just the way it is.

Joan said...

Love the photo too. Very cool shot!

I like that roping shot too. It shows action!

I love all the photos you shared today. :)

Genie said...

All of this photos you shared with us today are beautiful, but that last one is out of this world. Love the motion. I can just see you there watching it all and having the time of your life. I also like the shot of all of your granddaughters...it is really special. Love the angle from which you shot it. Great photos this week. genie

The Tablescaper said...

Great post. We went to a rodeo when we visited Texas the other year. I can't imagine watching your grand daughter out there!!!

Great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays.

No need to apologize ~ that is a wonderful action shot, BJ!

Hi BJ...

What a sweet and wonderful post, dear friend! Sure looks like you were one Grandma in her "7th heaven"! What fun!!! You sure do have some pretty little granddaughters...I think they take after their beautiful Grandma!

Loved getting to share a bit of a Texas rodeo with you, my friend! It has been a long time since I've rodeoed in Texas! Loved the photo that you got of your granddaughter competing...it's awesome!

So happy to have you join in with the fun of Sunday Favorites this week, dear friend! Thank you!!!

Warmest wishes,
Chari
