Spotted supervised my photo practice [Daily 10].

We stopped at a roadside pull-over …

… for scenic rock outcroppings.

When one doesn’t get out much, one has to make do for photo ops.

Shopping Bonanza

My local Tractor Supply was out of Milton feed, necessitating a drive across town. On the upside, the new store had massive Breyer sale. Small in number, but large in discount. Models that originally cost $40 were 1/2 off. Models that cost $60 were $12. Awesome. I’m not the type of person who usually scores this kind of deal.

One of my back burner projects is model horse photo showing [New Book]. Now I have a Thoroughbred and a Quarter Horse, both cantering, for realistic action scenes & Fire for fantasy dioramas [My First Model].

I don’t know what to do with one of these, much less two. OTOH, at 80% off, how could I not?

Doctor Hooves Meets Manehattan

Imagine this as an extensive series of photos featuring Dr. Hooves [Latest Additions] visiting all the places I saw in New York City earlier this month. Now imagine me spending too much time running around the city with my friends to actually take the required pictures.

Doctor Hooves outside The Morgan Library & Museum. One of the exhibits was Graphic Passion: Matisse and the Book Arts. Guess why I went. (Exhibition catalog if above link is dead.) Short version. Matisse was an illustrator. His book Jazz was the apogee of this. I had no idea.

In case you were wondering, Manehattan in the FiM Wiki.
Since this seems to be a thing, the view from my hotel window:
