The Quest Continues
I continue my quest for the ultimate example of Bandit photography. This one comes close. Who is the man on the horse, you ask . . . it is of course Pancho Villa. So, we have a good subject, an essential element of a good Bandit photograph. Secondly, we have a rugged skinny horse, another important element. The hat is of proper size, and is exquisitely positioned on the head. Yes, this is getting close, but, and I must say this is a big "but", on this particular day, Mr. Villa is wearing both his bullet belts across the same shoulder, instead of one on each shoulder, as we would expect and hope for. If only he had worn one on each shoulder and crossing in the middle of the chest. The quest continues.
