Photographing A Legend

One of the highlights of photographing at the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky was capturing one of my Eventing heroes on camera – Mark Todd.

Grass Valley and Mark Todd (NZL) warming up for their team dressage ride at WEG 2010.

As he circled the arena, I sent my Mom a text and told her I was weak in the knees or something and she responded, “puke and he’ll definitely notice you.”  Great idea.

Later I nearly sacrificed myself to the Alltech gods when I paused a bit too long in the golf cart lane to watch as he hopped in a rolling cart just a few feet from me.

Todd and Grass Valley picked up just a few time penalties on cross-country.   They looked polished and confident.

Todd piloted the 10 year old gelding to a double clear round.  With that, the pair finished 11th individually, and the team won bronze.

Way to go, Toddy.


Hello Wordpress

Blogger wasn’t working out.  I’ve had that account for too long for no good reason.  So in my extended effort to be organized and efficient in my daily life as a starving artist, I’m giving WordPress a try.  I helped my buddy Zeb Fry of Little Kentucky Farm make the switch from a crankily coded site to a WordPress account, and once I got used to the new interface, I kinda like the ol’ Press.  Plus, it gives me options for the future, which is never a bad thing.  Welcome!  There’s nothing to see here!
