#10 - A Horse

Have you heard about Rinda's 2012 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt? Rinda has challenged us to find and photograph a list of 21 items this summer - you can find the list and all the details on her blog here.
I am hoping planning to capture photos for each item throughout the next few weeks. This past weekend I captured my first photo: #10 on the list - A Horse.
When I saw this item on the list, I knew I would have no problem finding a horse as it is very commonplace to see horses here in north Texas. However, I did find it a little difficult to photograph A (one) horse because they tend to be found in small herds around here.
As you may have noticed, I had to do some close cropping to get the photo I'm submitting for the scavenger hunt. There were other horses in the background as well as a very similar looking horse nearby.
In fact, while we were out snapping horse photos, we pulled up beside these two at a traffic light.

Are you taking part in the scavenger hunt this summer? If so, which item do you think will be the easiest for you to capture?


  1. great photo Melissa, look forward to seeing more, this is going to be fun!

  2. fabulous looking horse - I'm not worried about finding a horse as the police in Edinburgh have mounted patrols (on horses). i think the swing from a tree and the bride will be my biggest problems

  3. I love the picture of the horses in the trailer. I got a couple pictures before the hunt officially started, but need to get a fresh one.

  4. great shot Melissa! The easiest one for me will be the library. I'm guessing the hardest one will be the bride.

  5. oh my, I probably not have even focused on it saying A horse and would have gone with any I could find lol Love the photos. I think the pier is easiest (it's the one I have at this point) Thinking the bride will be hardest.

  6. Great start Melissa! I actually found one of the items I thought would be hardest,while I've been in Barcelona this this space!

  7. I know right where to find a horse to photograph, but haven't made it there yet. The first day I found the angel statue. I'm waiting til I have a few before I post them.

  8. The angel was the easiest one for me to find but I have no idea where I'll find a horse. Guess that means a road trip for us. Your photograph of the horse is wonderful.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
