You first notice the eyes of the jockey. Being the photographer, it was a strange feeling to think he was looking right at me. He, to me, looks very sad here. A few splatters of dirt on his helmet. The horse. What do you see? Well, I have to tell you I missed a BIG one here! What in the world are in his ears? Ear plugs? Foam? I admit, I do not know anything about the racing world. Is this normal? Maybe, I just haven't noticed it before?
Like his forelock blown all of the way to the right. That is the part of mane that comes down between his ears on his forehead. His eyes are the same as the jockeys! Looking at me! Last but not least, bet you missed his teeth showing below his upper lip. Love the green/yellow/white coat. Love the contrasting colors.
Oh, and if you are a repeat viewer, "remember to feel this photo." I think you can. It has
feeling from the first moment you look at it. Whether the jockey grabs your sympathy, or the horse does.
Feeling a moment in a photograph. There isn't anything better.
