Real horse power


It's not a common sight, but I recognise the couple and am lucky to catch them on their horse carriage, this time. They're probably out of towner in town for some groceries shopping or deliver their crops. Whatever it is, seeing them is like turning back time...

WOW! What a NEAT shot Kris! Love the coloration you did on it...and the framing is just perfect! Best in show! :-) Love your blog format too...isn't it fairly new?

Lisi said...

it is so goooood to see that horse driven cart is still used...first, why not if you get the time, and like shadrach said, it must be quite enjoyable and secondly it doesn't pollute anything...

Jenny said...

Kris, do they really get around that way, it's not just to recreate the olden days? Amazing!

This horse carriage reminds me of TV film series 'Little House on the Praire'. Lovely shot Kris!

John said...

Nicely done, gives a real insight into the little town in Hungary and it's history.

Kris said...

john : i'm trying hard to dig out more photos to represent this little town ;)

tanty : "little house on the prairie" was one of my all time fave. but i think this couple is more advance :)

jugger : hahahah..right, right! the most economical suv!

jenny : they do! and whenever they're around, people stopped to admire their choice of transport. its cool

lisi : i should try the tour around town in one of those..hmmm, i must, one day

very nice shot! These carriages are pretty comon on the roads of Romania even nowdays. I find them somehow nice and still practical.

Felicia said...

That is so great! I guess they had no problem on the Int'l carfree day!

Jane said...

Old world charm... love it!

Kris said...

zsolt,
i believe so as well plus theres no harm to the environment. However, i think effiency won over practicality :)
