Day 103 – Wild Horses

16 Jul

I know you  hear me talk a lot about my mom going out to take photos with me and I think that is because it was a passion she had when she was younger. I didn’t really know about it until a few years ago when I started really getting into the details of photography and she told me about how my dad bought her a professional camera with several lenses and how she always wanted to take photos of bugs and flowers. She really touched me with her dream because it is how I feel and I wish I had known long ago, just like I am sure she did.

I try to get her to take my camera now when she points things out to me to shoot but she hasn’t taken me up on the offer yet, hopefully one day she will and maybe I will share some of her creations with you. It is wonderful having so much support and it is a lot of fun going out with her driving around looking for memories to capture. My shot for today is not only a day in my photo blog but a memory that my mom and I made together and that is the most important thing in the world to me.

We drove up a road to take a photo of a small church and she pointed out this white horse to the side of the road just galloping around so as we drove back from the church I asked her to pull over so I could try to take a photo. As we pulled over I noticed there were two horses, one brown and one white and they were coming right to me. I got a little nervous at first because there was just a small wire (I am assuming electric) fence and this irrational fear of wild horses crept up on me but my mom reminded me that they weren’t wild horses and they were just curious. They were so beautiful and I wanted to share one of the photos I took. Next time I am taking carrots along with me for the ride 🙂

    What a sweet shot!

    I am so glad you cherish the time with your mom. That truly is the most important thing in the world. And bless you for nurturing her dream as she nurtures yours. Please give your mom a big hug for me.

    Beautiful story about you and your mom. You are lucky to be so close.

    I enjoy reading your stories about family and photo adventures. They bring me more into your world and make the pictures more meaningful.

    Horse knowledge is not one of my strong suits, so I don’t know what kind of horse this is… but it looks like it has a bit of an attitude… which makes me wonder if it could beat Sea Biscuit.

    The black and white looks gorgeous here!

    That’s a breathtaking photo! Look at those eyes. How did it know bangs are in? I wonder why the muzzle strap thingy while it’s roaming around in a field.

    Tell mom we’d love to see some of her pictures.

    It’s a really beautiful story, I have not had the luck to shoot horses. Your post inspired me. Grande abraço!

    AMAZING!!! Why do we only get to see one of the photos you took, I want to see more.

    But you know that picture would have been better if it would have had a duck, or a pretty tree, or a swing…….

    I love your momma too!!Maybe when we finally do our photo journey again she will go with us, it seems like you all find all tha cool places.

    Nice shot. I think the black and white work well here too.
