Saddle Up

Capturing the Shot

In this image, I wanted to showcase the intricate details of an old Mexican cowboy’s saddle and a lasso tied to it. The wear and tear on the saddle tells a story of countless hours spent on horseback, while the lasso, coiled and ready for use, is a symbol of the cowboy’s deep connection to the land and animals. I deliberately chose to capture the texture and detail of the saddle and lasso, leaving the stories behind them up to the viewer’s imagination. Each mark, scratch, and groove in the leather speaks to a moment in time, a memory, or a challenge overcome. Through this image, I hope to convey the rugged beauty and spirit of the cowboy way of life, where hard work, perseverance, and a deep respect for the land and its creatures are at the core of everything they do.
