Brittany and I are big fans of photography and she has been talking about taking pictures with the sun setting for months. We finally got a chance to go out to the barn she rides at and used a very heavy and beautiful prop- a walking, talking (okay, he doesn’t talk but he sure does eat) horse! He was happy just grazing the entire time, I must say he is a natural in front of the camera.
While I would not consider myself to be a horse person (or an anything person to be honest) I can’t remember a time when I was more relaxed than while I was at the barn. You are in a world removed from the hectic city as you hear crickets chirp and starlings flutter above you. I jump at the chance to go there as I get to spend my time reading or taking photos, I know why Brittany goes as much as she does. It is a real life “happy place”.
