Theme Day: Waiting

They are very familiar with each other. Know the smell of each other. Trust each other even when blind-folded.

The body language of each of them speaks volumes about the pressures of waiting.

Kate said...

A most unusual post for the WAITING theme. I agree with Julie, and I'd like to add that WAITING can be pretty boring!

Red pantaloons!:)
I think he is a little bit tired or he is giving a BIG hug in his friend!
Adorable horse, I liked a lot your idea for this theme day!Well done!
And please forgive me , this week I'm doing a kind of intensive French classes, I'm a little bit crazy here to manage my time!
See you!
Hugs

Strange and unusual image. The horse looks more like a draft horse, so he's probably quite happy waiting idle. The man is quite bored, maybe tired. I'd be curious to know if this is part of some kind of show.

Indeed, that horse is waiting! Love this post!

Tanya said...

Very neat photo for the theme Bratcatt! How ever did you find this?! How perfect!

Sharon Creech said...

Who sets the theme?
I love this theme--I have recently been drawn to snapping photos of elderly people waiting on benches. Something so poignant there. . .

A great shot with a quite personal framing. I scent there the sense of wait and exhaustion but also of stoutness.
And I appreciated several other images too, on this december's theme.

Jilly said...

What a gorgeous shot. Red on red with a horse between the colours. Super for today and in a way it could be interpreted in different ways of waiting. Waiting to be saddled up. Waiting to ride. Waiting for the class to be announced. All waiting - a lovely shot.

Nice WAITING theme day photo! I looks like the horse if calmly waiting for his lunch . . .

So many cliches, so little time.

Thanks to all of you. Isn't this a great theme? I'm really enjoying everyone's images. V.P. and Tanya, I went to an outdoor fundraiser this summer. The horse and the man were performing along with many others. Poking around behind the scenes, I caught this intimate moment as man and horse waited for their time to costume up and go on.

This is a superb, creative, multi-dimensional interpretation of the waiting theme. This man evidently lives in a northern climate such as Vermont, as he has not done the waiting for his back to tan.

JM said...

Fantastic composition for today!

Small City Scenes said...

choice for the theme. Horses can be very patient at waiting as this fellow is and his rider is probably catching up on his sleep. MB

I see the horse has the cloth over the eyes to keep the flies off from pestering. I like the photograph.

Rob and Mandy said...

Oh wow, love his shot! Totally intemporal. Is it a circus?

lizziviggi said...

This has been one of my favorite theme days-- waiting gives photographers such opportunity! I love this shot. Waiting can be excruciating or peaceful, and since we can't see the man's face, we can only imagine whether he's impatient, or grateful for the reprieve. Wonderful picture.

Sharon said...

This is a wonderful photo! It seems like they are both waiting for something.

Jacob said...

What's happening here? The gentleman looks like he's waiting for someone to give him a shirt and the poor horse is waiting for someone to take off his blindfold so he can see.

Did you wait around to see what happened? ;-)

Nice, creative post, Brattcat!

Lots of pictures of dogs and cats waiting, but horses have to wait, too, don't they. Beautiful capture.

Waiting blindfolded. An impressive and excellent take on the theme.

Amin said...

Excellent capture..,

Rob and Mandy said...

I keep coming back to your picture. Must be love.

Steffe said...

Worth waiting for, this photo.

Vogon Poet said...

Thanks, I like this picture even more now. A very good catch!

Bob Crowe said...

It looks like they have been waiting for a long time. Now, I'm a city boy and I don't know one end of a horse from the other but what's with the blindfold? Is it to keep the horse calmer in the trailer?

Jarart said...

Beautiful, beautiful post! I love it.

Frank said...

This is so perfect for waiting. Great choice. Nice!!!

Marie-Noyale said...

Waiting needs patience..
but I would hate to do it blindfolded!!

Paula said...

It always helps to wait with a familiar friend. That's a big horse, so funny to see it with a veil on.

slim said...

What a wonderful waiting pair. You really captured a quiet moment.

Gunn White said...

Unique and superb!! :-)

Malyss said...

Strange picture, but very interesting.. Colors match well together, as well as the boy with the horse.The horse seems to be so patient.; Very good illustration for "waiting"!

Carraol said...

Powerful image and beautifully composed. The man and his horse, a wonderful history of centuries.
