Worth 1000 Words, Visual Storytelling
Reagan Upton [Barnshine, Road] nominated me a in a Facebook challenge:
Ten-day horse family challenge. Every day, select an image from a day in the life of owning, loving, driving and riding that has had an impact on you and post it without a single explanation and nominate somebody to take the challenge. That’s 10 days, 10 horse photos, 10 nominations, and 0 explanations.
So I made it a blog post. And I provided explanations. Because I want to. My blog; my rules.

Alvin & our best drive. I still use it as a benchmark to gauge how well I am driving.

As a retrospective, this list prioritizes current activities. That is what’s on my mind. That is what I have easily accessible photos of. This photo of Mathilda is for all of the horses, people, barns, trail rides, jumps, shows and so on, that came before Rodney and Milton and ASBs and driving and so on.

No one said the impact had to be a good one. We are all still twitchy from this adventure.
The above is a blank space for all the nonexistent photos of me riding Rodney. You better believe this has had an “impact” on me.

Because I can’t end on a downer.

Loved seeing the picture of Mathilda, you’ve mentioned her so much.
Graphic history, similar to oral history.
Mathilda: We have very few pics of her, She hated having her picture taken.
Graphics history: Amazing how one pic can call up so much.
Priney was such a successful pony hunter with her former owners that if you pointed a camera at her she would strike a pose.
Love this! I think combined driving is very cool. If I didn’t do eventing and like 20 other disciplines I’d love to give it a try. Maybe one day…
I’m a little confused. Did you want pix from me? Happy to provide pix, captions, whatever you need.
This started as a challenge on Facebook. Person A posts photos and names Person B. Then, Person B posts their own photos on their own Facebook feed & names Person C. And so on until we run out of people in the world and hit a recursive circle. 🙂
I was named by someone else. I didn’t want to do this on Facebook. So, I made it a blog post. You may do whatever floats your boat. Post your photos on your Facebook. Make your own blog post. Put your photos in a slide show, set them to music, and busk on street corners. Or ignore it and go on your merry way.
I like the idea of putting some pix on my blog and seeing what others have to day. Soon.
I quite like the blog post idea too. And I like what you did going over old photos. Demain… peut être…
Thanks for the nomination. I think.
French? Just English, por favor.
I welcome you to my blog post whenever I get the pix scanned in and posted….
Just posting mine, debandtoby. Have a look!
