  1. This is really amazing. It looks like a painting at first glance. I love the angles, the contrast of the red flowers amongst the gunmetal gray, the hidden head of the wrestler and the faces shaped in the background, all sporting a similar expression. Beautifully captured.

  2. wonderful pic… actually this is not just sports.. it is a custom… only during harvest the bulls will be in the field otherwise they are set free.. this custom is practiced to bring the wild bulls back to the field. I don’t know why somebody felt this is dangerous after 1000 years and banned it suddenly :)

    anyways.. wonderful pics indeed.
