This is one of my “photo with words” experiments. The words are from Mother Teresa, I took the photo at the BB Fall Festival…person unknown.
I shot this Lipizzan stallion last fall in Florida. These amazing stallions are trained for war (when horses used to go into battle) and this puppy would have no trouble knocking out all your teeth in one shot from his front or rear hooves. Horse and rider were like a single fighting unit. The stallions can easily jump to head level with a rider in the saddle and deliver a precision kick right on the noodle. That being said, this (well bred) horse allowed me to give him a carrot later on and I lived to tell the story.
I’m so sick of the winter already…I wrote a poem… (the tree is from my front yard)
Oh Snow…How do I love Thee?
I love thee on the neighbors driveway
and on the neighbors deck
I love thee on another’s staircase
and on their roof, oh what the heck
I love thee when its blowing
down the street to yonder path
or floating by the window
while I am in the bath
I love thee with a vengeance
and patience I have none
and check the radar often
to find when you are done.
