New Mexico Rodeo

Today's picture shows some spectators at a rodeo in Quemado, New Mexico. The picture was taken in 1940. Seems like Rodeo Week has been more about the spectators than the performers, but I just really enjoy the relaxed demeanor of the people. Takes us back to a time when live was lived at a slower pace.


  1. I would love to go to a rodeo one day.

    1. If you're in the South Jersey, Philadelphia, or Delaware area...there is one which runs every weekend in the summer, called the Cowtown Rodeo.
      They claim to be the longest running weekly rodeo in the US. (60 years, run by the same family)
      Check out their'll have a great time if you go.

  2. What a wonderful candid shot.

  3. The New Mexico State Police uniform hasn't changed much I see.
