Old Horse


The horse in the picture is a rescued race horse that was too old to run. Friends of mine own a farm and have a few rescued animals there. This horse was close to 30 years old and was going to be put down at the end of the summer. When I heard this, I wanted to give my friend’s daughter a photo of her adopted horse that she could keep.

Looking at the photo I especially like the fact that the horse is blurred. My intent is to trigger the memories from her imagination not just the photo.

  1. I love this shot. The blurring makes all the difference. Excellent!
