I have to say, I’m sick. Sick to death of this election year already. My personal policy is not to post political stuff. It’s divisive, no one will admit they are biased (yes, we are, all of us!) and it just causes so much vitriol amongst humans who during a particularly hard time in our history, need to be getting along better instead of fighting over which candidate is the prettiest.
So I had to get out of the house yesterday. Well, I try to do this anyway when I am home just to try to grab a few photos. The last few days I’ve been trying to get some nice sunsets, but…meh. So in the spirit of “meh”…I decided it was time for my usual approach. Just go out and ‘see’. This place I go out to hardly ever disappoints me, and even though I am limited to staying on the road, the surrounding countryside is rich with subjects. I got introduced to these guys last time I was out there, and they didn’t disappoint this time either. Not sure what it is about this particular group of horses, but they are full of personality, especially the one on the right. They are very curious, as are most horses. But they really appear to love to perform in front of the camera. Because I was actually ready with my camera this time, I got this shot that lasted… oh about 1/800th of a second. As soon as I hit the shutter, they all sort of turned to look at each other, and began their little performance.
Needless to say, I felt much better for having gone out and done something constructive/creative/whatever. Honestly, I don’t know what’s going to become of us, our country, our way of life. I also don’t feel like I have much control over it. But I can still go out and make photographs that make me happy, if no one else.
But just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean the horses aren’t out to get you. 😉 I’ll leave you with that thought, as well as one last image.
