In this bog I want to share with you the themes/images that I am working on and that have special meaning for me. I was delighted when I realized I could combine my love of photography and the unique way that I look at the world with my passion for horses. For this first post, I have chosen an image of Mama Sue - my first horse. She was a young thoroughbred that found a special place in my heart. Together we grew as we learned the art of dressage, a riding discipline that requires a lot of focus from both the horse and the rider. When I went to the barn, to clinics and to shows, I took my camera with me trying to capture her essence, and I think that this picture does just that. Unfortunately, Mama Sue developed some serious medical problems that ended her life too soon. Even though she is gone, she will not be forgotten.
