Just one of many horse-drawn carriages clopping along Melbourne streets, a more relaxing alternative to viewing some of the CBD

Swanston Street, Melbourne

Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave ‘topics’ of imagery :-))

    very nice shot Ell…the horse seems little camera shy

  • Thanks so much Shane :o) Di got a better ‘wide-angle’ shot though, I think :o)
    Brown horse tucked his head into his mate quite often while we were there, plainly very attatched to his friend, gorgeous to see though a little heart-breaking at the same time … I have a prior history with horses …

    This is truly great photography. It tells the whole story AND its perfectly composed. Its funny too in that the horse is in focus and the driver is background. That sums up the horse’s perspective too! Who’s doing all the work here!!?? Hah! Excellent!
    Cordially, another Ellen
