52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

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…

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!

  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!
