Some four-in-hands, camera games and even a few trees

Post  JimLewis on Sun Oct 10, 2010 4:08 pm

We drive over the mountains into Kentucky last week to watch a part of the World Equestrian Games. Wife Jackie is a driver herself, so we mostly watched the horses and buggy (driving) competition.

The event gave me a chance to get back into taking pictures of things that actually move -- unlike bonsai -- including a few sequences. Herewith a few pictures of some great horseflesh:





Movement is rather sedate in driven dressage such as this, but it's still fun to take sequences that show the individual steps. You can used the banners in the background to see how far they moved during this sequence.

I did promise some trees. On he way back yesterday I stopped off at the Carolina Bonsai Expo in Asheville. I'm sure someone who was there longer than I will post some more and better pictures, but here are a few, staring with (of all things) a large, and quite nice SERISSA!



I find many bald cypress bonsai to be a bit on the dull side, but this one was nice:



For some reason the show was very heavy in small trees this year. Smaller trees are my favorite, but this many of them was a bit much, I thought. Anyways, here are a few:

A wall filled with them:



Shohin on posts:



A mini tokonoma. I could have done without the photo of Mt. Fuji labled (in English) Mt. Fuji):



More small ones:



And an individual shohin or two:



A couple of small pines:





This was labeled "unknown" but it looks like Virginia creeper to me:

Jim the horses are nice but the small trees are better but the way they were displayed is not pleasant to the eyes specially the ones on the wall. very difficult to focus.

Agree about the wall display. Odd, to say the least.

There seems to be an air of competition in creating club displays for the show. Sometimes it works.

competition and experimentation always yield positive results. like, some room for improvement for next year displays and the exhibitors of the wall display would realized sooner or later that it shouldnt be repeated again next year...I hope. they should try something more dramatic...like "shohin on the ceiling"- catchy isnt it? just kidding.
