Rodeo Senryu

One of the things we did on our holiday was go to the Dawson Creek Rodeo. What a fun afternoon and evening in a stadium that looked out on picturesque prairie. It was like being on the set of Heartland!

What I love to do at rodeos is to challenge myself with getting shots of the action. Rodeos are full of action!

Today I’m posting three senryu (human haiku) based on a few of my rodeo shots. (Be assured, no animals were injured in the process of these events.)
