I wanted my next post to be a "Ta-daaa!" But, alas, it will have to wait a bit longer.
I am currently in CT with my sister and her family. Thursday, it turns out, we are bound for a hunter jumper show in Saugerties, NY. This was a complete surprise to me. But, when I show up to horsey friends and colleagues houses and they say, "Are you coming?" the answer is always, "You bet!" I shall be posting from that no doubt. I think you all will be looking at my niece and one of her beautiful warmbloods by Friday, if my connection is good.... existant.
On another line of thought, I am often asked what my 2 major sub specialties of photography have to do with one another: horses and performance (theater, dance, etc.). To me it is so obvious - horses are beautiful performers, dancers and models every one of them. As with people, my standards are not that of an exacting industry, but I believe beauty is everywhere. Context, meaning, passion... these all lend their own kind of beauty and power to any image, horse or performance. It is these things that catch my attention, likely more so than a perfect form. Though, those are nice, too. Maybe I'll have some to show you this weekend.
