We went to an animal park called Lakemore Farm Park, between Crewe and Sandbach yesterday specifically to photograph the miniature donkeys. These two, whom I think are mother and child, were concentrating on titbits being fed to them by two little girls, when one turned to see if we were intending to feed them. This pose immediately reminded me of one of my very favourite songs, Lean on Me sung by Bill Withers.
Taken with Nikon D5000 18 – 200 lens, worked with textures and framing from Irene Burdell, onOne and photoshop.
The second verse seems appropriate for this image.
If there is a load you have to bear
That you can’t carry
I’m right up the road
If you just call me.
Lean on me when you’re not strong
and I’ll be your friend,
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m going to need
Somebody to lean on.
