of sheep and humans made
Since images of sheep and people have been in the forefront of my brain and digital development this week, I will continue the theme of last week's blog. The images included today represent what might be considered environmental portraiture, although they were more spontaneous than staged shots. To my untrained eye, the fleeces on these two ewes look exceptional.
Hollywood stylists would have trouble duplicating this magnificent coiffure.
What horns you have!
Here are a few shots of the humans involved in the sheep shearing process. This is ranch owner Colin Henderson.
Patricia Quintana owns a flock of churro sheep in northern New Mexico and helped with the shearing, skirting, and bagging process at Collin's ranch.
Raymond is the mover and shaker in the process of moving the sheep from the corrals to the pens, into the shearing barn, and finally (safely) into the hands of the shearer.
I hope to give more photographic time to all of the people here as well as Connie Taylor and Tom Barr when they aren't up to the necks in wool.
until next Monday,
a passion for the image

Amazing photos. It thrills me to know that these beautiful creatures (the sheep and the people who dedicate their lives to them) flourish and are documented by you Daryl
