the black rodeo

a couple of months ago my dear friend, hannah sent me this incredible story about black cowboys in america. i casually mentioned that some of my cousins were cowboys in the black rodeo in oklahoma, to which she replied, "we have to go!!!" a couple of days after the rodeo, i spotted my cousin, rodney in that same story. sometimes life is just really beautiful and funny that way. 

 i'd never been to a rodeo before this one, so now i can say, "this ain't my first rodeo", with full confidence. also, bucking bronchos are FAST, so a lot of my live action shots didn't turn out, but i think i like the calm before the storm shots better, anyway. 

and one more of my cousin because he's a boss.
