My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped.
I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...
Great poem and image. I prefer the original because I like all the sharp detail in the coat.
Thank you, Denise! I prefer the original photo also; but i’m additionally very appreciative of the second photo, which, to me, has its own (different) element of artistic beauty… a lot, of which, is largely still due to the intrinsic beauty of the colt.
Lovely 🙂 Cute little thing! I like both photos, but perhaps prefer the second, that looks like a painting 🙂
Thanks Sci! There really is an innate innocence about it! I wish more of us had that! 🙂
Beautiful picture Thomas. I love doing the painting with the images.
Thanks, Sonya! Horses are truly beautiful creatures! 🙂
I love your words as always. Neither photo strikes me as preferable. True, they are vastly different. I enjoy the essence and progression of both.
Thanks, Jude! Horses make anything about them look good (usually)! Horses went extinct at the end of the Pleistocene era in North America. If it wasn’t for the Bering land bridge that connected North America with Siberia — allowing them to travel to Russia and Europe — there would be no horses.
Thanks for the history lesson. I’ll have to look into this more. I grew up with horses as all the farms had horses including mine. I loved them and it would have been a shame to never have met such a wonderful being.
Nice! Can’t believe the paint effect in the second image, it looks like a real canvas…
Thanks! The ego (i.e., the “I”) too is rather virtual… but that doesn’t stop most in seeing it as real.
