Two new photographers contribute pictures to our website
Darrell Jensen is a long-time fan of the Stonyford Rodeo. He attended his first one, he says, in 1947. He was school mates with Brother & Dick Moore and friends with Daryl & Joyce Bond for “100 years.” He is an amateur photographer who has been taking pictures for a long, long time. He photographs all types of events and frequently takes pictures for Willows High School.
Chris Haylett is former Community Church Pastor John Smith’s son-in-law. He, his wife, and children were visiting in Stonyford during rodeo week, and he was kind enough to assist Roy Stewart in photographing Saturday’s rodeo action. Chris is an aspiring missionary, and he and his family are on their way to a missionary post in Columbia. Chris is retired U.S. Air Force, where he served for 23 years working primarily as a photographer.
