#363 - catch of the day

Another one of those surprises. Usually we'd see horse carriages on and off but never a horse rider before. It happened so fast; I didn't have time to frame the shot nicely. Still am satisfied with the result especially seeing that smile from the rider :)

Very good result caused it's very clear photo...Doesn't matter everyone knew already the face of a horse but to captured a moving object in CLEAR result is SOMETHING!

Yes, it's the smile of the rider that makes the photo.

Nice shot. The essence was captured and that is all that is important to me.

I rolled on the floor, puked, screamed, and passed out. When I woke up the neighbor was gone.

The rider is so cute! Love this pic.

Kris, wanted to tell you how "sillily" excited I was to meet a friend of a friend this weekend. He is a post-doc student at Clemson and is from Hungary. I showed him your blog and he knows your town. :) (I still can't pronounce it right, but I'm better than before.) He said he is from a nearby town that starts with a G. It sounds to my ear like it starts with a U, but that is just my English perspective. I can't remember how to spell the rest of the town. Sorry! :( Anyway, he said you are on or near the boarder of Romania. It was really fun hearing about your area in person. :) Cheers!

Nice capture Kris. I see he has the spurs and chaps. He is ready to do some serious riding or just trying to make the ladies swoon.

Emily,
hahahaah..i didnt say the "s" word ;)

Lessie,
wow, what a conincidence! hahah..the world is indeed getting smaller.
