That is Mr Ed, The Talking Horse!

Al good, but love the spinifex-type grass, lower left, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It is, he said, " hello, I can't see you well, but that is the lesser of two evils,darned fly's! " The grass is nice, thanks Ray.
great b&w image and treatment Frank... the horse seems to be having a nap... he will be in the long grass soon if they don't fix that rail fence....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Peter, I think he was...Don't worry, there were some wires that don't show up in the pic' to stop him. smile
I think he's in la-la land, which is the next best place to heaven, I'm sure, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: He was having a good doze for sure, Ginnie.

And the horse is asleep standing up
Frank L Croston.: I'm pretty sure he was,
the B&W is such a good choice here
Frank L Croston.: I thought so, Chantal, thanks.
I especially like the fencing around Mr. Ed. ; )
Frank L Croston.: It did add to the shot, Jacquelyn...Are you doubting it was Mr Ed? smile

I pity the animals in hot weather but maybe they are used to it. The fly mask seems to have affected his vision and can't see the gap in the fence to make his escape. Good point of view.
Frank L Croston.: I feel for them too, Alan, though they seem very stoic about it, don't worry, there was a wire you can't see to stop his escape.

Is that what you call a Grey, Frank?
Frank L Croston.: I think it is, Elisabeth, yes.
B&W definitely the best medium for this great shot
Frank L Croston.: I thought so, Martin, glad you agree. Thank you.
This looks to be right out in a backwoods area. I do like the presentation of this one.
Frank L Croston.: It's in a park area ( Buffalo park) ,Brian, on the outskirts of Flagstaff, thank you.

Another excellent in b&w - lots of natural graininess to assist.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Louis.
I like the soft effect Frank. Very nice
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Janet.

Lovely picture, I really like the way you have presented it Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Anne, pleased you do.
The horse certainly looks as though it could do with a bit more shade!
Frank L Croston.: It did, Tom, not much to be had though.
I really love how you processed this, Frank! Suits it very well!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth.
