Along The Way… Equestrian Acrobatics

May 05, 2011

My idea with this blog when I first started it was to make it a daily photo diary. Life tends take over each day and I don’t always get to post photos like I want. But I’ve decided to try my best at making daily posts. I’d like to give people an artistic and visual reason to return each day. As a photographer, I get to see so much and go so many places. I’m truly blessed. I’ve never felt arrogant about the history that I get to record or the magnificent people that I get to immortalize by preserving small moments in time. I just feel lucky to be there, and because of that, I want to share what I see.

I love this time of year! This is when the world of photography turns its attention from the almighty orange bouncing ball to the moving hooves of the horse. For me, it starts with a few trips to Keeneland, and then the Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event, seen here, and then on to Louisville tomorrow for Oaks Day and the Kentucky Derby.
