We Went To See The Horses

My grandson and I went to see the horses that live about a mile down the road from me.  He had a new phone and I thought it would be a great chance for him to take some pics with it. He did a great job but I don’t have any of his photos.

These first two horses are always so gentle and sweet. They have been together for quite some time. I think they might be used for special needs children to ride on.


This little fellow was so cute and tiny! But he was quite the spitfire.



My pics are not so great this time but oh well, better luck next time.


I tried to do a free lens photo but didn’t manage, but I still kind of like the pic.


Horses move fast!


This little bull is very gentle and love to be petted. And that is where I stepped in fire ants! Time to go home.


This cute little thing is the security cat. He followed us the entire time.


We had a great time hanging out and talking about our photos and the animals.



A Great Magazine and More Photos

I mentioned Artful Blogging Magazine in my last post but I failed to tell you which issue I had gained my free lens information from. It is the Aug/Sep/Oct 2016 issue which will be on display until 10/31/16. The full title is Artful Blogging Visually Inspiring Online Journals. I love this magazine! It is packed with inspiring photos and great articles. I don’t have a subscription but I am thinking about getting one. I find the price to be a little steep at $59.99 for four issues a year. I guess it’s just the lump sum that is hard to swallow but I just realized I have paid that much all together for various magazines in the last two months! I am a magazineaholic.


So I went back and re-read the article that Sarah Rhodes had written on her blog, A Beautiful Mess trying to see if I missed something or not as I am finding it very difficult as did Erin Hensley from the article in Artful Blogging. Erin finally mastered it very well may I say! Below are more of my free lens photos as well as one reverse lens and some attached lens photos.












I hope you enjoyed these and will give it a try.
