This fellow who has just been shot looked like a Marshall or Sherrif to me. After all, he is dressed in white, which always represents the good guys in old western movies! Stars were on his boots, but I never did see a badge. This picture was taken during a gun fight reenactment, during California Gold Rush Days, located in Old Town Sacramento, California. This photo was taken with a Canon XTI equipped with a 75-300 mm lens.


My life is like a well read book that’s never ending, at least for this moment in time. As I continually add new chapters to my book, I find that my photography plays a big part in it. This is most especially true as my great love and fascination with Mother Naure never wanes. It’s my hope that you, too, will share my joy as the pages in my book of life continue to flip forward! My Very Best, Polly Peacock

    Very neat capture. I used to do old west gunfights in an amusement park in Wichita, Kansas on Sunday afternoons. This brings back fun memories.
