Too Funny

Australian photographer Julian Wolkenstein uses "pony pinup style," or horses with hair extensions, to shoot an advertising campaign. But coming up with the idea was the easy part, of course. “The horses didn’t cope well with the lighting and direction,” Wolkenstein, 37, complains. “Each horse had four hours of grooming and styling before coming onto the set. Then they would shake their heads and we would have to re-dress them.”

Came upon this in the September 2009 issue of Reader's Digest.

Okay. Why the text appears gray instead of a more legible white, I don't know. But at least the picture uploaded okay.

This one is funny Mary. How dare those horses have a mind of their own and not take direction from the photographer! They must not have understood how important this was and what a wonderful opportunity they had been given. Ingrates :)

I know!! His comments sounded like horses I've known and loved (sometimes with difficulty). :-)
