A Horse of a Different Color

(I have had lots of questions about my header shot - it was taken in Connemara, Ireland, near the 12 Bens.   I am such a sucker for shots of the road...)

This stretches the thinking just a bit, don't you think?  But they were simply too pretty to pass up!


These are all located on the grounds of a beach vacation rental company on the southern end of Virginia Beach.  I love the colors and the style of the horses - these guys don't eat much, and notice, they don't have to be fenced in!   There is a banner near the first one that says "Live Strong".  I think there is some significance to that, but I admit, I have no idea what it is.  I just like the horses!

They are pretty! That last shot reminds me of something from my childhood....but I can't remember exactly what it is!
I agree: that header is gorgeous! Where was that??

That header shot is great. I thought you had created it by overlaying one photo on top of another somehow. The first horse reminded me of a van I saw once where the owner was covering it all in small mirror tiles. What a tedious bit of work making each of the horses must have been.

These horses are beautiful. We have a bunch of them around town. One year there was a project and a bunch of artists painted horses just like these and they displayed them in different locations.

Awesome idea ! Winnipeg, Manitoba had a 200 polar bears through the downtown which artists decorated. It was cool.
Really like your new header and your theme of roads.

I like them too Linda, especially the first mirrored one, how fabulous for reflections oui!

Carole said...

First off, the mirrored horse reminds me of a mirrored dress form that I saw at an art show a couple of years back (using only recycled materials), but both remind of the artistic cow forms that were painted and auctioned off for charity in Portland (OR) several years ago.
