It is winter in the Netherlands! The Dutch are skating on every surface stable enough to hold their weight. Ice fever is running havoc in our little country. But fear not: it is not harmful.
Snow covers the landscape in a gentle white blanket, the light magical. Of course, V-man and I went for a walk yesterday, and that’s when we met this beauty. She was not camera shy, and not people shy either, because she came thundering towards me at full gallop when I called her. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a treat with me. But I did pat, cuddle and whisper sweet nothings. And that was OK too.
For a while I was lost in her big brown eyes. When I looked up, however, I saw other eyes, brown-green ones, that looked at me with the silent request to finally continue in the cold, strong wind. And that’s what I did. Onward! To the next animal. 😉
Erica created an interesting challenge this week: choose a photo that represents being just one in the crowd, being anonymous. Find a way to mask your subject.
The first photo shows a beautiful horse, but I wanted to capture the love of these two teenagers, taking care of it.
In the picture above, I tried a different technique. The subject of this photo is obvious, isn’t it? A huge yellow art statue is popping up from the earth. Still my eyes are drawn towards the child that is only partly visible.
I hope these photos do justice to the challenge.
