Photo-A-Day! Tuesday, November 22nd

I am SO excited for today's post!

Today started off like any other ordinary day. Truth be told - I didn't even want to get out of bed this morning. The weather lately has been cold and rainy and it just makes me tired. There were no plans, nothing really special going on.
However, the sun was out today. It was a little cloudy and cool, but a lot better and prettier than it has been lately. So colorfulpen, better half, and I embarked on a small adventure to find photo ops. Colorfulpen suggested an area she passes frequently when taking and picking up her youngest from school. It was a field that looked out to the lake, and since the days are shorter when it comes to sun light, the sun was just about an hour away from sunset. It actually made for really good lighting and gave my pictures this mystical vibe.
Then, colorfulpen suggested we drive around and see if we can find anything of interest. After driving for a little while we saw a parking lot for a Karate center by some horses and stopped. I noticed there was actually an older lady standing by a shed and suggested we could ask her if it'd be alright to take pictures of the horses. I let colorfulpen do the talking though - I'm a little shy. Haha!
The lady was very nice and gave us permission. She even pointed out more horses a little further down from us and said we could take pictures of them, too. I was so excited!
When I was smaller horses were my absolute favorite animal. I have since graduated to wolves but still hold horses very close to my heart. These horses were particularly friendly and posed next to the gates for us. I even got to pet most of them.

We also discovered two donkey's (I had to google and make sure it was a donkey and not a mule..) in the field as well. For today's picture - a very cute fuzzy eared donkey by a vintage-ish bike.

More of these photos to come! Including the field and lake photos!


  1. Oh, this picture makes my heart sing! I love the fuzzy-eared donkey. I used him as one of my photos today, too, but saving my bike photo for another day. The bike is way cool.

  2. Thank you! Hahaha, he (or she) is just the cutest thing. I saw your pictures and loved them, was just about to go comment on your page. :P
