handling a bull run

the master trainer - look at the stance and the poise.


learning the ropes




going solo (after 10 mins of training!!)






this is ballelaka at its most elemental.

and action photography at its best.

despite being a co-resident, i get a fresher view of the goings on at pointReturn from your reports.
the pictures of your ploughing session look more interesting than the actual event i witnessed.
your dance in still photos is far more aesthetic than when seen in motion.

For a moment I thought the person in the first snap is talking on a cell-phone :) There are no laws for using mobile while ploughing I assume :)

Anyways nice photos. Seems like you have lost oodles of weight. I need to come there for a boot camp :)

v - he is talking on a phone. of course it is impossible to talk and plough at the same time.
