I’m a small town Illinois journalist. More of a writer than a photographer. But I always get inspiration from life. I was inspired to do this blog by Chicago Tribune photographer Scott Strazzante‘s blog.
I’m new at this photographer thing, but I decided to give this a shot.
This photo was taken at horse show at Lamplight in Wayne, Ill. I caught this picture by tents when Jennifer Punzi and her horse, Expresso, went out to show.
It struck me as such a simple photo. A girl with her horse, almost like a child walking her dog, with not a worry in the world.
I turned on the black and white option on my camera and shot this. I shot it in color too but I think the black and white fits the simplicity theme I was going for.
Like I said, I’m new at this photo thing, but I think I’m off to a good start.
