Artist's Description

There’s always one face in the crowd that draws the eye and this Tohono O’odham Indian calf roper was the one. Linda Gregory and I thought we were going to a PowWow at the San Xavier mission, but discovered instead a Jackpot Roping on the reservation. I caught this shot as he was pouring a cup of joe at a very ugly roach coach, so gave him a better background, using a pic of an old corral fence taken several years prior.

One chance, camera under my arm and a quick glance at the LCD before tripping the shutter. I take only candid shots of people and the folks he posed for later got a much less natural look.
