Life’s Sweet Ordinary

Winston Churchill said it best,

“There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.”

These horses may be covered in mud and already have the beginning of their winter coat but to me they and this image are the epitome of life’s sweet ordinary. Taken on a recent trip to Edmonton, before the snow fell. (Since I was showing them mud and all, this photo is entirely straight out of the camera without any adjustments to colour or exposure — au natural.)

Diane loves to capture life’s sweet ordinary through her lens, whether it’s people, places, or horses! Contact Diane (use the contact tab above) if you’d like her to capture visual keepsakes of you and your life’s sweet ordinary.

Whenever my daughter and I see a group of horses together, we say “look, the horses are having a meeting!” ๐Ÿ™‚

Lovely picture Diane!

Beautiful sooc image! Have I ever told you that I love your slogan “life’s sweet ordinary”? Simply wonderful! Trying to think of one for myself, and it’s very hard!

They’re beautiful and this is an exceptional shot. Looks like they had a photo shoot appointment with you:-)

Don’t they just radiate personality and charm? I think Churchill was right on the mark.

Fantastic shot, Diane. Love the dust spots! =) My next photo is filled with dust spots, but you’ll understand why.
