Sunday Stills: Nature's Frames

Mother Nature wasn't too cooperative for this photo challenge. The Pineapple Express kept us pretty wet this week, and I spent half of our lone dry day on appointments and errands. I grabbed the camera for Indy's afternoon walk but didn't find any photo-worthy material.

So once again I snapped my photo at the front porch.


This was the closest I could come to the assignment. One of Kiyara's old shoes placed in a planter for some interest.

For those who may be wondering -- those are stud holes at the heel of the shoe. Like cleats on athletic shoes, studs give the horse more traction for jumping on turf. The size of the studs varies per the conditions. Once competition is finished for the day the studs are unscrewed and the hole is plugged to keep the threads clean.

To see how others met this week's photo challenge, visit Sunday Stills.

Horse shoe in the field, not such a great frame. Horse shoe planted on purpose, nice. ;-)
