I think the adrenaline keeps him alive....
What a great shot....
This must have been a great experience and I know the people will be very grateful for all these pictures, what a memory to keep smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: HA!!! You know, you're probably right!!!
Thank you Astrid!
It was really wonderful, and I am so pleased that I was able to record the day for them. I printed out several photos of Travis, and Wayne took them to his family. They were the last images of Travis roping.
Amazing... 90 years old and still roping. Great stuff!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He's something isn't he?! Thanks Jacquelyn!

I know, Elizabeth...I keep saying the same thing: NINETY! I'm so glad you were able to print some of these out for the family. They'll be eternally grateful!

I am too, Ginnie. I'm glad I was there to capture Travis roping. He was in so many photo's... even here - he's in the background!

Good for him! Yeah.. long may he continue to do this; that's the way. I see one concession to his age, though.. a knee brace smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Awesome, eh?! Yep - gotta have that brace on - but that's it!

In his case that would be 90 full years. Very impressive.
They say cowboys don't die, they just fade away. This one still has some fading to do smile

Great treatment to the shot.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Very full years, yes!
No one's told him it's time for him to start fading!
Thank you Louis!
Quite an amazing action shot Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Richard!
Fitness works! smile

Great movement in this Elizabeth, and love the treatment
Fantastic accomplishment for a man of his years, Elizabeth; I wonder if he is looking for a girlfriend.
