Attending a bull fight was certainly something I will not forget. As it turned out, I had chosen to be in Madrid during their festival, so the best known matadors in the world were there, so what transpired was not the usual affair. I took a number of pictures, then decided to look more at motion, so I slowed the shutter speed down, probably to about 1/8 second. Almost as soon as I did that, a bull literally flipped the matador into the air. The banderilleros rushed forward in an attempt to distract the bull, which is the point I shot this particular image.
This is a Bromoil print made on Ektalure paper. I decided to scratch the print in an attempt to replicate the confusion and distress at the time.
