Underneath a Jersey Sky… Not For Long

May 13, 2009

The bad news: Rock and Racehorses: The Blog will be taking another hiatus for a few days.

The good news: I’ll be enjoying a long weekend of fresh air, trail riding, and good friends, and conducting a mini photo clinic in the mountains of Georgia.

I’m saying goodbye to….

Underneath A Jersey Sky

and

Wizard

and

"Congratulations, Bryan... You're still in the running towards becoming America's Next Top Model."

And saying hello to…

A Blonde in the Buttercups

and

John the Mule

and

Comet

and

Show me your pearly whites

When I return, we’ll have a Preakness winner to discuss and maybe I’ll finish wading through my Rolex and Derby photos :^)

    Is that grey a mule? His ears are huge! Have a great time in Georgia.

      He certainly is! That’s John the Mule and he’s one of the finest equids I’ve ever ridden. He’s an Energizer Bunny, he’s surefooted, and he’s gaited :^)

      Thanks DP!

    Packing your bags again? grrr.

    Instantly two rock tunes came to mind…

    Time to play Name that Tune !!

    a) Everyone goes south, every now and then.
    You’ve done it, why can’t some one else?

    b) There are stars
    In the Southern sky
    Southward as you go
    There is moonlight
    And moss in the trees

    Who’s got the right answers? 😉

    Hi Sarah,

    I am a HUGE fan of your work and am an aspiring, beginning photographer. Do you offer mini photo clinics often? I live in Atlanta and cannot find any photography instruction locally that focuses on animals. FYI, you shoot 2 of my favorite subjects . . rock and racehorses. I can’t wait to see more of your Derby photos. Your photos of Zenyatta at Churchill Downs were unbelievable.

      Dear Michele,

      Thank you very much for contacting me and for your kind words. I do not normally do photo clinics- this one was a blend of my friends getting together and our favorite hobby. I’ll keep the blog readers posted about my whereabouts and if there is time in the future, I might be able to arrange to meet up somewhere and do a little hands-on work.

      Best Wishes,
      Sarah

    Well we got some rock afficionados here.
    Answers to Name That Tune:

    a) Everyone goes south, every now and then.
    You’ve done it, why can’t some one else?

    A: BILLY JOEL – the title track from The Stranger album

    b) There are stars
    In the Southern sky
    Southward as you go
    There is moonlight
    And moss in the trees

    A: THE EAGLES – Seven Bridges Road ( a road near Monmouth Park BTW)
