american museum of natural history

please click on this photo if you would like to see some amazing detail.

if you are new to my site, at times you will discover I like to travel to areas surrounding long island, particularly new york city. one of the great things about long island is our close proximity to wonderful manhattan. in the above photo you see an artists take on the horse. this one is standing outside the american museum of natural history. I also like to visit and see what is happening at other daily photo blogs. lucky for me I stumbled upon kitty's new york portraits. I had to post this photograph after I saw her blog post from saturday. go check her out here. I think you will enjoy her blog too. I'm putting a link to her site in my side bar as well so when you come back to visit me, you will have easy access to some interesting new york photos when you are in the mood.

love the photo - I've seen a lot of those horses, but never one so creative. Great lighting.

I love the clock insides on the horses snout(?)! I remember seeing that and not thinking anything of it but now...! There's a hotel we stayed at in Boston where the horse was painted with faces of various Bostonians.

I clicked on Kitty's link - fabulous and beautiful photo of one of the world's most beautiful animals. I wish we had more police on horseback patrolling here and long, long sentences for anyone who would dare to harm a horse.

MM, I'm glad you enjoyed Kitty's photos too! I like how you are such an animal advocate.

Thank you everyone for your nice comments. You made my day.

hey thanks, Lily. I'll have to add you to my links, too.
I have photos of another horse on the property. Only now did my very slow brain make the link that it's all in conjunction with the Horse Show that's going on now in the museum.

Nice shot!
