Horse: Cincinnati

This little dude maybe wasn’t supposed to warrant as much attention as I gave him in the gallery, but I couldn’t help it! He’s such a funny looking fellow, a weird little horse, and I really enjoyed his pose and the way his scruffy textures interacted with the very clean white of the walls and base.

While I can’t wait to have a camera that can capture distances with a little more nuance, the phone camera does pretty well. I find myself always staring down at my feet when taking a walk in the woods. It means that I see snakes before I step on them and that I rarely get my feet wet. Sometimes, though, it is a joy to look up and see a great, green riot of leaves and blue sky like this one.

This little guy is an ongoing attempt of mine to photograph works of art in a visually interesting or meaningful way. So often photographers want to take as accurate a photo as possible and then, completely by accident, take out a lot of the experience of an artwork. Probably, the original sculptor didn’t intend for this wooden saint to be quite so whimsical, but I feel I captured the reaction I had upon encountering him.
