Sunday Stills: Metal

Since there were no emergency room visits, follow-up appointments, or conferences this week -- I could get out my camera to capture the following photos for this week's challenge.

And of course, I located my subjects at the boarding stable where Phantom now resides.

A detail from the structure in the central parking area.
The barn was originally a Trakehner facility.

Gate chain to the mare pasture.

Abandoned shoes on the fence of the gelding pasture.

Another pair of abandoned shoes.
(Note the stud holes and toe clips for an eventer.)

Same shoes, different angle.

Although the subject was metal, I was also pleased with the wood textures captured in the photos.

See how others met the challenge at Sunday Stills.

Nice set of photos. I actually expected more horse shoes today, but yours was the only ones I saw.

The b & W photos make it a very cowboy theme.

What are you writing? I wrote for a while, but now am blogging. Less effort.

Nice color choice! I love the rust :)

BTW tonight I heard the "flying monkeys" (like wizard of Oz, the noise :p) of a very large flock of geese flying south...winter is coming!
