Not sure why, but my first reaction to this photograph is, "am I seeing what I think I am?"
Intention, intention. Look at the "intention" of the jockey's eyes and stick on the right. Where is it
directed? Look at the expression on his face. Now, look at the jockey's eyes on the left, and his expression.
Is this a friendly race?
I don't see it that way. This photograph gets me pretty upset.
Fair, or unfair?
Mean spirited, or is it all in the game?
I could be misreading this altogether.
It could just be "nose to nose."
