Photographer's Note

After getting sucker-punched a few weeks ago by a couple of common thieves, it was time to get “back on the horse”……so what better way to do that here than with a picture of, well…a horse of course! :)

Photographing animals is certainly not my forte. I realize I clipped its ear with this framing, but I was much more concerned about maintaining my balancing act rather than fall into the irrigation canal trying to achieve the proper composition. Even a gymnast would have had some difficulty with the limited space, and my physique is far removed from pulling off that kind of agility!?

It’s been quite an ordeal, but things have returned to some semblance of normal life. I still have a busy schedule dealing with the aftermath, so please understand if I’m slow to respond. I’d like to sincerely thank everyone for the sentiments expressed to me during this time. Although I’ve only met but one fellow member in person, I felt the communities presence of support. It really does seem like one big, photographic family!

To keep things in perspective though, my troubles are nothing compared to what’s taken place in the Philippines recently from the typhoon, the late season tornado’s in the American Midwest and the tragic plane crash in Russia. My thoughts go out to the individuals and families who have been affected by these events.

Tough transition after that, but I have one last thought I’d like to share while bouncing back. Although the punks that broke into my home and stole my belongings will never see this note, I’d still like to dedicate to them one final quote from my favorite movie, Die Hard…and if you’ve seen it, you’ll know how this ends, “Yippee ki-yay.............”


Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day everyone!
