17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Brown Eyed Cowgirl

I spotted this very real cowgirl working the chutes helping cowboys get ready for their bull rides. She stood out so much that I tried to get a photograph of her, but she was just too far away. After a bit, she came close to where I was taking pictures of the action in the arena. I don't often take people pictures, but I boldly asked if I could take her picture. Unlike most people, who instantly get all camera faced, she didn't change her expression in the slightest other than this striking glance in my direction.
