“Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?”~P Picasso
We have a lot of events here with cowboy re-enactments. Cowboys and Western Ladies come to town and stroll the streets, have “shootouts” and various cowboy demonstrations. I went down to the Whiskey Row Shootout in downtown Prescott this morning and shot for a bit, mostly concentrating on portraits and close-ups of their cowboy regalia. I find that the men are much more interesting to shoot than the women as many of the cowboys just have such character in their faces. Maybe it’s the fact that they are playing a role, maybe it’s a certain “look” that gravitates towards this form of roleplaying . One thing I figured out for sure today: they ALL have mustaches, if not beards and sideburns. And stubble is also almost a given!
