Thursday was a great day. We had the opportunity to head out to Pilar, about 55 kilometers from Capital, to catch up with our friend Karen (and her mascotas). Karen is a fellow horse addict and photographer.
Before we went to the ranch, we relaxed a bit and looked at some of her photos. Although she's shot a lot of different subjects, clearly her
favorite is horses and anything related to them. The variety included: polo players - mallets flying through the air - chasing the ball down like hounds after a rabbit; silver-tipped wood stirrips that do triple duty as riding
accessories, water bucket, and ground tether; young horses caught in mid-air during play;
farriers caught in the midst of the back-breaking, but all important job of shoeing horses . We could have spent all day looking at the all of her photos. I guess next time I'll have to ditch the husband so I can see more photos. So, if you're looking for a fabulous horse photographer, I'd be happy to send you her way.
After our little photo fest, we headed out to Rincon Alto polo ranch to see her horses and check out some polo practice, but I'll just have to keep that story for another time because it's getting late and my poor fingers are stiff because here in Buenos Aires tonight...it's COLD!
chau for now.
