I have had a hectic day AGAIN!!! We are expecting a severe snow storm starting shortly and will probably result in between 8 & 15 inches of snow by this time tomorrow evening. Thankfully it looks as if we will not get the ice and freezing rain this far north, but south of Indianapolis they will get a bit of everything. So I have had to bed all the horses down again because the snow will be followed by below zero temps and temps of -4F again and three days of max of 10 F and I can be sure I am not going to get a lot done outside in that cold. I also had to get the bus that we use for the horse shows (details of that follow) started so I could do some emergency shopping. It is diesel and has to be kept heated and the batteries were a bit flat from the cold. It has taken me about a week to get it started again so at least I have transport. The downside is that the lane to our house is about quarter of a mile long and has a hill that drifts when it snows and blocks off anything from getting in and out until it has been plowed, which we rely on the neighbors for and they arent always accomodating. We are the third house along and dont have a very good relationship with the second family. Looooong story LOL. He is a nutcase. So I may be snowed in for a bit. As a result I havent even looked at my camera today.
In the summer months I shoot a lot at horse shows for the exhibitors, I have a 24 seater bus which has been converted to accomodate my husband and his wheelchair, the computer, printers and all the other equipment I need to edit, print and deliver the photos at the show. It has been fitted with an airconditioner, cupboards, microwave and refridgerator so we are pretty self sufficient. You can see proofs from some of the 2006 shows on my website htttp://www.prophotobylori.net they are mainly palomino, Pinto (spotted horses) and Welsh Ponies and Cobs and Quarter Horses.
While I am at the shows I do the standard shots in the arena that the exhibitors want and also look for unusual stuff to use for stock images. Quite often these pictures will also appeal to the rider and they will actually purchase a print of them.
Here is one which, although it isn't a horse as such it is an equine theme and I rather like it. I have started a collection of these so what the heck I will post two of them LOL.
Hope you had a good day and I hope we keep our sanity and electricity over the next 24 hours.
