Here is side shot of yesterday's birthday boy, Prince. He has the most amazing lower lashes I have ever seen. They are probably five inches long! I have never seen this on a horse before. Very intriguing indeed! His eye is definitely a compelling reflective pool. I like his view of the pasture, the white fence, and his owner!
Come near. Stand next to me. Blend your mind with my thoughts. Get lost in the dream. Feel the moment.
Let time stand still.
I am Prince.
OH HOW I LOVE HIM!
I have a really hard time when someone wishes to photograph me. So, there I was, standing in front of large dressage mirror. Thought I would be a bit weird, and take a snap shot. There I am. Here I am. Oh my, a photo of me. Is that really me? Hands gripping the camera. The lens with a square reflection. Baggy pants which I love. Keys in the pocket with a hard blue capsule of pepper spray out of my pocket. Just thinking, "this is funny..."
A setting sun warming the thick blonde mane. A strand of his forelock laying above his right eye. The soft eye lashes that are a painted feather. The eye intense, and thinking. The pupil hidden in the middle. The white blaze down between his eyes that has a deep stripe of darkness behind it. The dreamy blackness of the rest of his head dissolved to the right.
Red gloves, red purses, red coats, red rubber boots, and red patent leather shoes... Something about red gloves brings me back to wonderful snow filled childhood memories. The first thing I noticed about this woman was her red gloves! What a great contrast in color. I think the horse was also drawn to them. I think he was thinking, "just touch me!" "They look so soft and inviting!" He was definitely mesmerized. I love the light touch of her fingertips on the top of his nose holding his white blaze in place. Her thumb tickling a whisker. The rest of the whiskers outlining her thumb to the base of his nose. The overall gentleness.
If you are questioning the "why" of the red memories, check out the photo below.
Thanks Mom... hahaa
Here is a black and white photograph of a horse with the color of "buckskin." Buckskin is normally a blond coat, and a black mane, tail, and legs. This horse is named "Beau." Full registered name is, "Godfather's Beau Dancer." He is a very sensitive horse to his owner. He cares, and loves. He also worries. Look at this photograph to see an eyebrow lift on his left eye. The concern it shows. The intelligence, the thinking he is involved in. What is he worried or thinking about? Look at his strong head, the long mane that is parted in the middle and goes down each side of his head. The mane to the left that is on the side of his neck is as thick as nothing that I know of! If you lift it, it weighs a ton. He is a sweetheart, and a pleaser. I should know, because he owns me! My Beau Dancer!
Black and white photography = true emotion
Hi there! Welcome back to my photography. I hope you are not missing anything since I have taken the Face Book photo page off. Too many multiple postings, first on my Face book page, then on the photo page, then on this website. So, hopefully, if you like my photographs, you have bookmarked THIS page so you can always see them, if you would like to! Too much writing, and not enough photographs! So, let's go! Just look at the below photo! Analyze, think about what you see....
Ok, here is what I like about his photograph. Please leave a comment about what you like!
First of all, the rider/jockey is so in tune and focused. Hmmm, looks like the horse's eye is focused on the same thing the rider is! The rider/jockey is so LIGHT in the saddle, up above the saddle, the weight from his foot in the stirrup looks like there isn't any weight at all. The tip of his boot into the stirrup. The POOF of the air in his jacket of green! The flow of the mane of the horse standing straight up. Just love the white of in the middle of the horse's head that shows up electrifying. The bit is not taught in his mouth! The reins are loose. The crop is at the rider's knee.
This is a very intelligent horse, and rider!!!
A PARTNERSHIP. LOVE THIS!
