52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

52. A Calm Moment


Last week I went with 2 fellow photographer/blogger/adventure seekers to the Republican National Convention in Tampa Florida. We were seeking some unique photo ops and it was an absolute blast! I took shots that were suitable for many of our themes but I am choosing to post a photo of something a little unexpected. Alongside the parading protesters and frenzied media a mounted policeman was showing his horse some kindness and having “A Calm Moment.” This is the stuff that doesn’t make the news…

  1. This tugs at your heart strings, doesn’t it? You’re right in that our media overlooks moments like this.

  2. Great moment & great post. Almost as good as the cops in Coyote Ugly.

  3. Wow…that is a tender moment. I never thought about the trauma a horse goes through. So much protective gear. That horse looks calm and protected! Great capture.

  4. any animal helping a human being seems so noble … what a lovely idea to take this photo.

  5. What a great moment to catch-love the look on both of their faces!
