All this talk about rodeos and cowboys made me want to share a few photos done by my brother, the photographer extraordinaire. His photographs do so much more than just capture an image. Somehow he works his magic and captures the spirit of the subject. I think these two images are great examples of his gift. No Photoshop, no retouching, basically no fiddling with them -- just magic. To me, it always has been and always will be an amazing thing. Magic, that is.
Believe it or not, this grand creature is named Doodles. Don't you think he should have some mystical fairy tale name?
