This is my good friend Randy, who has been blessed to make his living as a cowboy throughout the western United States, including Hawaii. Currently he and his wife are managing a ranch in Montana, which is where I captured this picture of him. Randy has always been a hero to me, loving wholeheartedly what he does, and loving God wholeheartedly as well. With a song on his lips or a lesson in his actions, Randy is a man of many talents, including breaking horses, reciting poetry at gatherings across the west, and braiding reatas (ropes). In this particular photo, he was waiting for more cattle to be brought his way for sorting (to be loaded and transported to another ranch).

    This is truly a cowboy picture. You’ve captured it perfectly and the sepia tones just make the picture.

    beautiful portrait and tones- I bet Randy has some great stories!

  • Oh my word, more than anyone I know! : ) He is quite the storyteller! I could listen to him for hours. Thankfully, I have his two cowboy poetry reciting CD’s, so can listen to his melodic voice and be entertained for hours whenever I feel like it! : )
