Houston Rodeo 2015 (so far)


We’re about half-way through our season-long attendance of the Houston Rodeo, and it’s been pretty fun, albeit a little repetitive. Basically each night we see the rodeo events immediately followed by the live performances.

The rodeo events have been my favourite things to see so far, particularly the Mutton Bustin’ and Calf Scramble, but the horse and bull riding has been impressive.

I think I’d give it a miss in the coming years, or at least go for one full Saturday or Sunday to get my fill of fried food (including butter!), bacon-wrapped sausage, and funnel cakes.

Also, better opportunities for photography can be had during the day. Here’s a quick collection of pics I’ve taken so far. Most of these were taken this past Sunday. (Quite a few of these felt like they warranted a B+W conversion, so I did them all. I think they’re better for it (although I’ll likely post a final gallery with colour photos once the Rodeo is over)).
