This is Kevin Ventura on Joey Gallo full of Intensity during his successful 88.5 ride during the 35th annual GPM Bull Riding.
I liked just about everything in this capture and decided to play in the DD to enhance the genera and presentation.

The DD worked very well. My toddler grandson liked this one the best of the three I showed him. It was easier for him to understand. He has good taste - his favorite song this week is "Purple People Eater" Last week it was "Witch Doctor" Hope you had a great birthday and have a wonderful weekend! #10141997
