Going out in style

Monday 12th October 2020, 11.45am (day 3,336)

Horse drawn hearse, 11/10/20

One of those where the object of interest had turned at a junction and was trotting away from me in the distance before I realised how interesting it was. But I just about got the shot. That is the way to go, is it not. And this is the second horse-drawn hearse to appear on here, the first being in London back in January 2014.

The day’s big race

Sunday 29th March 2020, 3.40pm (day 3,139)

Totopoly, 29/3/20

I don’t know if I’m the only one having problems uploading pictures to WordPress at the moment: these difficulties explain why these posts are coming out at odd times right now. It’s been a case of when it works, grab the opportunity. Maybe it’s all a consequence of the ongoing hiatus in civilisation…. There must be many groups who are having to come to terms with changed circumstances. What are the inveterate gamblers doing at the moment, I wonder, with no (public) sporting events taking place? We did consider a live sream of our afternoon game of Totopoly. Number 2 did turn out to be the winner — odds of 5/1, don’tcha know. Clare in the background looks excited, as well she might, as she was the owner.

Horse above Hebden

Thursday 18th April 2019, 12.30pm (day 2,793)

Horse above Hebden, 18/4/19

Properly back home — this is the first Hebden Bridge pic in exactly a month. The Easter holidays have kicked in, it was a beautiful day, and like this horse, I was doing my best to relax into it all.

Playful

Playful horse, 12/4/16

Now there’s an animal that knew how to perform for the camera. It even did it twice, after I didn’t quite get the shot the first time round.

Horses and Heptonstall, 27/3/16

Easter Sunday, and my entry in the Cheesy Chocolate Box cover shot, 2016. The horses know.

Funeral, Walworth Road, London

Saturday 11th January 2014, 10.45am (day 870)

Funeral, Walworth Road, 11/1/14

To properly encapsulate today, I should really have included a photo of Brighton, where we spent most of it. But on the walk to London Bridge station in the morning, this spectacular funeral came past, and I just about managed to get the shot off in time. The ‘antique’ effect really benefits it, I think. That’s two hearses already in 2014, however. Also, perhaps surprisingly, in 870 days these are the first horses to feature on the blog.
