Abraham & Penguinito


"Abraham & Penguinito" Februrary 1, 2009
West Odessa, Tx


Taking a drive, I spotted this boy working out with his horse. They were a pleasure to watch, both so young and synchronized. I spoke to him for a while. He told me his grandfather named his horse, Little Penguin, because it would never grow much bigger than it was. I've promised to give him a print of this photo next Sunday. Maybe I'll catch a few more shots of them riding then, too.

Was he at the Moss road arena? I used to barrel race at that arena.

Penguinito looks like a sturdy little pony. I like this picture.

This is a wonderful photo. You've really caught the sweet spirit of Abraham.

This is so real that it doesn't look real. It's surreal. Good job.

Nice shot! Horses are hard to photograph, they seem to look so out of proportion when you see them on the screen. You obviously nailed it though:)

Love the way you have captured the rounded lassoo. Quick work with the camera:)

Good connection with the boy and Bev is right.

When i phtographed horses I often stepped in it....

What was it that bruce willis would say in the movie "Diehard?"
