If a picture paints a thousand words

This blog is a place for me to work on my photography. My goal is to submit a new picture every day and to get better as the moments go by. I take all pictures with my digital camera. I worked for years with a 35 mm minolta, and this is a learning experience for me. I am afraid that I got lazy and allowed the camera to choose most of the settings for me. This is my journey of learning how to shoot a camera that is not in a program mode. It is harder than I ever imagined. That makes this challenge both a new experience and a joy for me.

Wild Horses - Day 179

Don't know why these guys made such and impact, but I totally loved this statue.  I loved the colors, the detail and the total wildness of it.  I thought it was worth sharing.

A lovely horse is always an experience.... It is an emotional experience of the kind that is spoiled by words.  ~Beryl Markham

A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.  ~Pam Brown

"There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man."  Winston Churchhill.

The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears.  ~Arabian Proverb


  1. Patty Ann,
    Can't you just hear the whiney-ing and the muffled noises their hoofs make? I like that sound as well as the sound of leather when getting on and moving in a saddle!
    thanks for the thoughts...

  2. Fabulous. And I love Churchills quote.

  3. Statutes can really move you and it looks like that is what happened to you. Lovely shots and you can tell there is so much work and talent that go into one of these beautiful things!
