If the question is what are my favorite things to photograph, I bet anyone who has even thought about looking at the blog could answer
- My horse
Now that I have kittens they can be included, but to be honest they don’t sit nearly as nice for the camera as D’Artagnan (Dar-tan-yon). In fact, the only time I have problems with this horse and photos is when he is respectively trying to eat the camera. But, I mean, who wouldn’t want to do that?
Sometimes I wonder if my readers get tired of horse pictures, or more importantly, one horse over and over again. Sometimes I think about taking a break from the horse photos, and sometimes I actually do. But these creatures are so stunning that I could study one for years and not get tired of it. I’m not just saying this about my boy, either, though he is the love of my life.
Horses have long been these figures of grace and power. If you own one or spend time with them, you know that’s not always the case. (Hint: My horse has literally been afraid of a butterfly before) But there is something to be said about that statement.
I get so used to seeing people on horses that forget how swift they are. Power? There is no arguing that, sheer weight can get you there. But grace? They float, their muscles rolls and tighten. Sometime the fluid movements of their bodies are enough to make you say that you’ve found the most graceful animal on earth.
It’s hard to be that powerful, that big, and that graceful and intricate. But these animals do.
