photoblog image these are not just horses

these are not just horses

these are Marks and Spencer horses.

I didn't really find any conveniently photogenic horses hanging around Wetherby on Saturday - I was in the shopping centre not the race track. There was a new Marks and Spencer food shop. Why they included pictures of horses outside along with the pictures of chocolate puddings, fruit salads and other stuff for sale inside I don't know. Perhaps they are selling horse meat now?

The original is at http://tadpole.shutterchance.com/photoblog/49154.htm if you are interested

apologies to those overseas visitors who are spared the TV commercial and don't get the 'joke' :)

"The bees pillage the flowers here and there but they make honey of them which is all their own; it is no longer thyme or marjolaine: so the pieces borrowed from others he will transform and mix up into a work all his own." Montaigne
...better than honey! smile
paul: smile what a nice way of putting it

Looking abstract. I can say its looking Good after I ve seen the original.
To quote Capt. Mainwaring, "Stupid boy!"- makes a good image though! As it seems to be fashionable, I must try a fuzzy one tomorrow.
paul: LOL. I think it is a shutterchance rule - everyone has to post at least one fuzzy one

A great rework and thanks for removing the direct food association from the horses. My equestrian daughter appreciates it a lot. At least your is indirect. smile

Great picture though.
