Environmental Portraits

This challenge was to photograph a Portrait in that persons job Environment.

The day we decided to go out and photograph - also happened to be the day that the wind started blowing. and the horses were missing.  We have Natural Gas wells on the back of our place ( and no we don't own the mineral rights - so no $ for us)  But the Gas companies use our roads.

There must have been a new driver, as he doesn't quite get that if a gate is closed LEAVE IT THAT WAY..... and our horses were 2 miles south on a neighbors ranch. Which means they were 3 miles south of the corrals I wanted them to be in......  

But I digress..... Here is my Submission for the week:



This was my second Choice:
he looked a little angry to me here 
But at least it wasn't me that left the gates open
( I haven't done that in 20 years... I might be due)


I would like more practice on people....  in lots of weather conditions.

Yes super angry! Do you call the gas company and report these events so they can educate their folks?

I love those shots. Maybe your fella knows he's going to end up on your blog - hence his expression. I have to sneak pictures of mine. :) I took some photos on Friday that would fit your assignment this week.

Maybe a sign on the gate...something to the effect of..."Dear Idiot: If it's closed when you get here make sure you close it after going through!"
