Below, Hokusai’s “Sumidagawa Sekiya no sato”
I could have fudged my photo a bit to make it match. I had been sitting on it for a while, building up a stockpile of horse photos. I could have covered up the blue van, perhaps added some shadow…. but I’m running out of time.
On Pultney Bridge.
JC: “No text for you.”
JR: “To answer Ionna’s question, I had to zoom in on this from quite a distance, and because of the less than optimal effects, I had to photoshop correct the colors. It was actually raining hard, and this horse (unlike all the others) was taking shelter under this tree. I observed this for a good 30 minutes before finally asking myself why I wasn’t taking shelter somewhere?!”
Here’s another marker. My blogger account barely trudged to 500 so I was surprised when this site hit over 1,000 visitors. By the 8th, this post will mark 5,000 hits (and this is without allowing me to tamper with the numbers or count my own numerous visits to this site for updates). I don’t know where everyone is coming from but I do realize that in the general scheme of things that that marks my site well below numerous cat-oriented photoblogs – and that this means war. No kitty will beat me. Never.
Text? No, just enjoy the ride.
This is becomming almost personal between Austen and me. I was turning down Bath Street toward the Cross Baths for a shortcut when, lo and behold, I ran into all of these Austen groupies. “Persuasion,” which won’t be shown on TV until March, took over the entire street and even brought their own lamp posts. The production company set up Bath Street as a market street, more or less like a Sunday flea market with all the stalls and crazy outfits.
Again, filming Jane Austen’s “Persuasion” at the Royal Crescent. On his break, this chap took out his digital camera from a watch pocket and took some great shots of his horses and carriage. The only shot I got was him reviewing his pictures.
