Capturing his soul

A rebel horse, who doesn't like to be tamed by these strange beasts who force him to do strange things. Still, he's ridden by a 12 year old ;-)

Human or centaur...

Why the long face?

I found this horse lost in his thoughts... with an absent look on his face... but since he is the horse of kings (as the French say, "Balzanes trois, cheval de roi!"), he kept standing there and patiently waiting for his owner.

Good luck riders

With all the polemics around some very polemic Olympic Games, sometimes people tend to forget that the athletes are fulfilling their life's dreams, and that they worked harder than many others to get where they got.
Without politics and without bias, can we remember to wish good luck to the first ever Portuguese Dressage Team? Well done, the world will be watching you :-)

Mirror, mirror on the wall, aren't these the cutest models of all?

Painting with light - Dancing Lusitanos

Some photos from this weekend... Trying some abstract techniques yet again :-)
Dancing Lusitanos, in Lousada, Portugal.

Abstracting again

And aren't trivial moments the most beautiful of them all?

Quote of the day: "I guess that’s all forever is...Just one long trail of nows. And I guess all you can do is try and live one now at a time without getting too worked up about the last now or the next now." (Nicholas Evans, The Horse Whisperer)"
