Animal

201 words on

Look mom, no kittens!

These pages have traditionally be lacking in the sense that I don’t have a heart for pets and thus cannot offer regular postings of cat photos here. Even though I consider cats to be animals of the more tolerable kind because they seem to be smarter than dogs or horses, say. Speaking about horses, I usually think about sausages or other such niceties when they are mentioned and thus it was surprising to me that I took a photo of one in a recent stroll through a perfectly sunny and warm January afternoon. I had taken my various cameras for a walk and also had the 500mm tele with me which gave me a good close up of the animal.

Interestingly, in the blurred background – boke(h) if you wish, although the internet seems to be full of heated discussions of what does and doesn’t qualify – clearly shows the little ‘doughnut shaped’ circles that give away my tele is a mirror lens. The technical zealot would call that ‘bad’ or ‘ugly’ boke I guess as it is a bit distracting. But this does tempt me to try and use that ‘weakness’ of the lens for something cool.

I didn’t know one could obtain or eat Horse sausages. For some reason, back in the UK, Horse meat is taboo.

Admittedly, eating horse meat isn’t all that common around here either, but it’s available from time to time.

I had heard about people in the UK being disgusted by the idea… a consequence of being obsessed with horse riding aristocrats I guess ;)
