Looks can be deceptive. Photography can be deceptive. Or should I ask, “is seeing believing?”
Look closely what do you see? How many horses are there in this picture?
If you said one horse, you’d be wrong. Look again. There are two horses in this picture. Yes, there are! Click on the photo to see an enlarged version. No, it’s not trick photography or clever editing. Synchronicity? Optical illusion? Being in the right place at the right time? A contrived photo set up? Definitely not. I kept my distance from these horses, just in case they weren’t too happy about a trigger happy photographer disturbing their equilibrium. How these two beasts came to be in such perfect alignment I’m not sure. I’m just glad I was there to capture it.
And to prove it wasn’t a staged photo, here’s a photo of the same horses from a different angle taken several moments after the photo above. Yes, seeing is believing…or is it?
