'. . . . . Meet Me at the Fair!'
Some time away from the studio to attend some of the events at the opening of this year's Howard County Fair. Met an artist friend there and we started off by photographing some of the Horse Pull competition. The last time I photographed this as reference, I was still shooting print film! So, it was nice to get some digital reference of these beautiful and powerful horses.
We wondered through the chicken house and found some interesting birds to make note of and then wound up at the Show Jumping Ring and spent quite a bit of time watching the young ladies put their horses through their paces, canters, and jumps.
I think I have found some ideas for upcoming works!
