Wander down that one way road. by oneofsixbillion Wander down that one way road. by oneofsixbillion

Oh, I've found, that I'm bound
To wander down that one way road.
And I realise all about your lies
But I'm no wiser than the fool I was before.


- Paolo Nutini



FULL VIEW NECESSARY.

I like this picture a lot.
I thought that the square crop gave more attention to the water droplets.


4/29 *EDIT: Holy crap... a DD. -isdead-
THANK YOU EVERYONE, for all of your support.
If I could thank everyone personally, I would. (:

Wander down that one way road. by *oneofsixbillion Comment by *Ellie-the-dreamer "This is a really spectacular shot, the best horse shot I've seen in a while. I've never seen someone focus on the hooves before, and with the rain falling down, it adds such moodiness and atmosphere. This is what photography is about; capturing the unnoticed things and showing the beauty in them." ( Suggested by Ellie-the-dreamer and Featured by Photosbykev )

That's very, very lovely XD

It reminds me of a poem I read a long time ago... it kinda went like...

Under Pared Moons
it walks around
a horse once killed on the battleground

its ghostly hooves
shudders slips
and darkly neighs at distant whips

at the leaden bend of the barricade
with hollow eyes
it stops, afraid

and later it slows
steps retreat
through ruined squares
and desolate streets


I don't remember who wrote the poem, but I loved it so much that I memorized it, I'm sure some of the words are mixed up, but I memorized it years ago XD

That's a pity. My friend used to ride but she got a contusion and they didn't let her ride anymore, at least for some time.

Aw man, that is a shame. I used to ride, but it's just too expensive, and I have bigger priorities.. my time is limited because of school and work now. = /

This peice is beautiful. It shows so much, yet, it shows so little. It expresses emotion. Very different than your average photo. This peice is amazing. Your photography is amazing.
