2017 Extreme Barrel Racing
The 2017 Extreme Barrel Races were again being held at the Reno-Sparks Livestock Event Center. Last year I covered the event mostly from the perspective of the competition. But this year I decided to focus my energies on the view point of the paddock area, where the riders nervously waited for the time in the hotseat. I think I got some interesting shots, especially from one young woman who noticed my presence and provided me with an unexpected smile.
