Horse on the Porch
Piece description from the artist
I almost didn't make this photograph. My son and I noticed this curious scene while driving home from school one rainy afternoon. I didn't have my camera with me and I feared the scene would change before I could get home and grab my camera. By the time I returned the donkeys had huddled up near the house and the horse was still trying to stay dry on the porch. I was so impressed by the scene I decided to add some textures and a copper tone to the photograph. It has become one of my most recognized photographs. In fact, the owners of the horse and abandoned house contacted me shortly after to let me know they've tried for years to photograph the horse on the porch without success. This once in a lifetime photograph is still a favorite of mine.
