4 April, 2014 - It's All a Blur - Thu, 3 Apr 2014

rider200 Whats new

This new article is about creating impressionistic images of subjects in motion. But before proceeding, a word of caution. These images were taken at a bull fight in Mexico. I am not a big fan of bull fighting, indeed I find them mostly unpleasant to watch. But, I accept that in some countries they are an established part of the culture and history. All of the images on this page are done in an impressionistic manner and deliberately none are gory. I have mainly focused on the horsemanship in this collection. If you are offended by the very thought of bull flighting, please do not go to this page, and also, whatever you do, don't write to me with your complaints about it.
