Here is our photo of the day for 3-25-2012, the 16th day of our photo challenge to take and post a picture of people, places, events, activites, etc., for LeFlore County.
We will call this photograph “The Nose Knows”, if for no other reason than it is catch. Yesterday morning, I saw a few horses in a pasture in Poteau near a fence. Had some fog and dew on the ground and would have been a cool picture.
Unfortunately, a certain photographer didn’t have his camera at the time so he decided to come back later and try. When I returned, several of the horses were up close to the fence and I wanted to get something like this by using a wide-angle lens, in this case a 10-22 mm lens. At first, all the horses were a little shy until I did a poor imitation of a horse sound and this one looked at me and appeared to be smiling for the picture.
People don’t much like it when I take their picture using the wide-angle lens because of the distorted look. Fortunately, the horse didn’t care.
