William and Keith Flake 

This is a photo of me by the rancher and producer of rodeo videos Keith Flake, originally photographed at the rodeo, but this is a different background of me pasted in there using my photoshop skills.
 

This photo of my dad was originally photographed by my mom or a different photographer during a cruise, and I thought my dad would look good on the front cover of the "Time" magazine, as I might think that my dad is probably just going to be the best business man of the year, and my dad might be the biggest hit for the front cover of Time Magazine


This photo of me by the calf roper Josh Peek was originally photographed by my dad but this is a different background I got pasted in, and I thought Josh and I would look good on the front cover of the "American Cowboy" magazine, as I might think that I am probably just going to be the best greatest calf roper only easily in the rodeo, and not on the ranch, but I am more only perfect just easily for the rodeo, as calf roping would only be just my main event, and I might be the biggest hit for the front cover of American Cowboy Magazine, as if I would like to be one of the greatest calf ropers in history.


I worked to develop this logo so that I could build my own rodeo arena, just only for the calf roping event. The things I like about this logo are "Superstars International Calf Roping Championships", because this is meant to look like the best arena I would ever build and make it the best indoor arena perfect to take place at nighttime. The image of the rodeo rider tie-down calf roper was done by some artist and this image of the calf roper dismounting is from a book called "The Sports Book" and this image is from http://www.dkimages.com, and what came to my mind was that I decided to paste it in, as I wanted the image to talk about the rodeo and the tie-down calf roping event, as this event tie-down calf roping involves roping a calf and tying its legs together. The calf must remain tied for six seconds or the competitor will be disqualified. In this arena, the rider may always have to leave the saddle when trying to rope a calf. New for the real rodeo lifestyle I would be proud to announce that this highly successful and popular event is going to take place in Orlando, Florida in November for 10 nights and 10 rounds, and in the final round, will feature an incredible match roping. This event calf roping will be held in conjunction with two of the greatest western events in the world “National Finals Rodeo (NFR)” in Las Vegas, Nevada and “Mo'Betta Calf Roping” in Apache, Oklahoma, and this rodeo called “Superstars International Calf Roping Championships”, that will be held in conjunction with two of the greatest western events in the world “National Finals Rodeo (NFR)” and “Mo'Betta Calf Roping”, up in Apache, Oklahoma. Superstars International Calf Roping Championships is one of the PRCA’s, Rodeo Video Inc., world championship from the Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Association on ESPN, and pro rodeo’s most unique event and is perfect patterned after the highly successful Mo'Betta Calf Roping — this event is a true test of calf roping skills. The top 15 contestants is required to compete in all ten rounds, and after 10 nights of 10 go-rounds, the top 2 ropers are in the match roping. The match roping starts with 2 ropers. The winner in either the match roping or the champion gets the big check, the title and the prestige to be named “SUPERSTARS INTERNATIONAL CALF ROPING CHAMPION.” The Superstars International Calf Roping Championships was developed by William MacLeod in 2008 to determine the best professional calf roper in the world as a superstar — the man who could dominate the sport from the ranch work in more than his specialty roping event, the man who could try to win and be great at all ten rounds and the shoot-out match. This event attracts the biggest names in the rodeo history in addition to thousands of fans from across the country! Some of the cowboys tentatively scheduled to compete for the $1 Million purse to be determined as one of the greatest millionaire, as the SUPERSTARS INTERNATIONAL CALF ROPING CHAMPION, as you'll agree this is the top best favourite CALF ROPING EVENT OF THE YEAR IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA ON ESPN, AS PEOPLE MADE SURE THAT YOU WOULD STAY ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT!

This is a business card that I created for the Superstars International Calf Roping business. This may be of some use as I plan to start my business sometime in the future in Orlando, Florida. The image of the rodeo rider tie-down calf roper was done by some artist and this image of the calf roper dismounting is from a book called "The Sports Book" and this image is from http://www.dkimages.com, and what came to my mind was that I decided to paste it in, as I wanted the image to talk about the rodeo and the tie-down calf roping event, as this event tie-down calf roping involves roping a calf and tying its legs together. The calf must remain tied for six seconds or the competitor will be disqualified. In this arena, the rider may always have to leave the saddle when trying to rope a calf. The photo of the white cowboy hat by photographer Ellen Isaacs came from http://www.worldofstock.com.

This is my first collage. I picked photos of all my best shots of myself and some of me with my friends and some rodeo images to make this whole thing look realistic like the whole rodeo collage cowboy world country poster. This is how you ought to be a rodeo cowboy!

This is my second collage. I learned a lot about PhotoShop when I made this from using the eraser tool to adjusting the color of some photos by making some photos brighter. The images look a lot like they could probably tell a story, or if it was a video clip of things playing at the same time.

This is an original photograph of me by Ben Druhan as Ben is playing my guitar for the photo. This photo was done using a dry brush filter in Photoshop, as if it would look a lot like a painting, and this image looks very REALISTIC!

This was originally a photo of me photographed at the Cowboy Christmas Gift Shop during the 2007 National Finals Rodeo (NFR) in Las Vegas. So, then, I took the photograph of Joe Beaver roping the calf at the 1996 NFR from the website http://www.joebeaver.com as I pasted myself into the photo of Joe Beaver so people could know that one day my real big goal is to become a real professional rodeo tie-down roper, because Joe Beaver, Josh Peek and many other great calf ropers are my idols and that I sure do look a lot like Joe Beaver. I'll never retire from my calf roping, never, because when I'm at 99 years of age and also 139 years of age, I'm forever going to rope in the open ropings and professional rodeos of the Mo'betta calf roping, Calgary Stampede, National Finals Rodeo and many other professional rodeos and open ropings all over both the USA and Canada forever and ever in real life and I'm going to rope forever and ever, you know that I'm going to rope forever, YAHOO!

I applied a slight drop shadow to myself to create a 3-D feel and I also applied a blur to the background graphic to really give the sense that I am at that rodeo.

Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest Hits is the most popular one ever, as this picture is such a very popular one as they must sound like a little Irish and and of course, look a lot like real leprechauns. I designed this image myself.

This is a photo of King of the Ropers and western artist William MacLeod was just posed roping from Henry Joosten's tractor as if I am practicing at doing a few practice swings as if before I would be going into the roping box as I was just posed doing this like a real rodeo roper, originally photographed by photographer Ben Druhan at Henry Joosten's barn on Wednesday, April 13th, 2011 in Ohio, but this is a different whole background of me pasted in all in one of a triptych: Rodeo Roping: morning, noon, and night, and also half sundown, half indoors, half universe world, half rainy days of rainy mornings, rainy days and rainy nights, half grass, half dust. This image is just very great and perfect for all four seasons and 12 months for everyday and all the time as this will never end in the imagination of the real best viewers, as if to feel like that I am doing a few practice swings as if before I would be going into the roping box as I was just posed doing this like a real rodeo roper as if to do that in every rodeo circuit all over the USA and Canada at every open ropings, professional rodeos and every indoor and outdoor practice pens and of course, senior rodeos, the Mo'betta calf roping in Apache, Oklahoma, the Spicer Gripp Memorial Roping in Hereford, Texas, the Calgary Stampede in Calgary, Alberta, the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the Pendleton Round-up in Pendleton, Oregon and also of course, many other great different professional rodeos and open ropings all over both the USA and Canada and everywhere all the time as this image looks to be a great massive for all 12 months of the year all the time from early morning until night.

This really kind of shows how this photograph of me roping all the time freezes the same image and also makes the same great video clip at the same time for all of the 12 months all the time to relive and repeat forever and ever in some of the different light and color, as all of this whole image represent the never ending excitement of the posed image of me with a lot of my energy all the time doing some roping practice swings
as if before I would be going into the roping box at all real western rodeos as this just really shows that I am now understanding that I will never are going be be too old at 99 years of age and also 999 years of age to keep doing the things that you love and keep you young at heart forever and ever to just keep on allowing you to continue doing the things that we love so much as it goes to show that if you have the heart, you are "never too old" and never will be! I'll never retire from my calf roping, never, because when I'm at 99 years of age and also 139 years of age, I'm forever going to rope in the open ropings and professional rodeos of the Mo'betta calf roping, Calgary Stampede, National Finals Rodeo and many other professional rodeos and open ropings all over both the USA and Canada forever and ever in real life and I'm going to rope forever and ever, you know that I'm going to rope forever, YAHOO, as I will just be lucky to be alive forever and ever in the 100th century and also be alive after the 100th century forever and ever in my favorite event, the calf roping

This is one of my best favorite ones that I've ever created in Photoshop to make it realistic to show that you can do all roping every day, all the time from morning until night for all 12 months any time and any day, as I'll hopefully get to have back to repeat and relive again forever and ever as this shows that the past is never going to be gone and it will come back again forever and ever and that there'll again still be another January 1st, 1996 to December 31st, 2011 rodeo seasons to come back to relive and get repeated again as for real life you can press and hit the back button in real life as there'll again be another 1996-2011 rodeo seasons to get repeated and come back again forever and ever!!!

This collage is a collection of my real true done deal favorite cowboy heroes that everyone ought to someday have like me (William MacLeod). In this photo, you will see world champion calf roper Joe Beaver, calf roper Jerry Jetton, the movie actors John Wayne and Patrick Swayze and singer/actor and rodeo single steer roper, George Strait.

George Strait is an American country music singer, actor, and music producer and he's also good at the rodeo events calf roping (a. k. a. tie-down roping), single steer roping and breakaway roping. Strait is also referred to as the "King of Country," and critics call Strait a living legend. George is known for his unique style of western swing music, bar-room ballads, honky-tonk style, and fresh yet traditional Country music and is also a very good tie-down roper (also known as calf roper) in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), as well, too, and also, does some breakaway roping and single steer roping, as well, too.

There can also be other great different calf ropers that are my favorites, as well too, along with Jerry Jetton and Joe Beaver.

I just think that when Joe Beaver has qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in tie-down roping eighteen times beginning in 1985, as he also won the WNFR Tie-Down Roping World Championship in 1985, 1987, 1988, 1992, and 1993, and in 2001, he also had won the Coors Original Fans Favorite Cowboy.

For real rodeo tie-down roping, I would like to say that Jerry Jetton and Joe Beaver are the best of the great calf ropers of all-time along with several others, as well, too and that's what I like about calf roping.
