Last Saturday I broke with tradition somewhat and instead of taking pictures of classes, I wandered around for about an hour, snapping pictures of whatever caught my eye.

This included horses being silly:

"Neener!"

“Neener!”

Or posing:

"Why yes, I am naturally this fabulous."

“Why yes, I am naturally this fabulous.”

Lots of flowers in bloom at the moment, which provided some very nice camera fodder:

Naturally, at the end I found myself by the ponies’ pasture and took these little gems:

Last weekend my sister and I went to visit some friends up north, and we discovered that winter was not quite over in that corner of the country:

Hi everyone! Apologies for another long silence; I don’t even really have a good excuse this time, except possibly that I’ve been spending a fair amount of time working with “my” horse. I mentioned a while back that Mountain Blue had basically become my project horse. Well, as of October, that is officially what she is. I’m leasing her, as is another lady, who, incidentally, happens to be the other resident French-American at the barn. What are the odds? Anyway, we each work with her 3 days a week, and between the two of us, we’re making quite a bit of progress. We still have a long way to go, but Fred and Lucie (and others) have said that she’s improved significantly over the past year, so we’re on the right track at least. If nothing else, this will teach me more patience.

All right, I know you probably want pictures now, so here you go:

As you can probably guess from this entry’s title, I’ve started dabbling in black and white. Or, more accurately, I discovered the “desaturate” button on GIMP and have been having fun turning some of my latest pics from color to black and white. Here’s a sample; let me know what you think:
