she come in my garden everyday and sit in front of me while I work on my sketchbook. she doesn’t want food, she just sit there looking at me. today I covered her in flower and we were both happy.
Maybe she’s your guardian angel.. I mean srsly. Just look at this cat.
There is way too much intelligence in those eyes. There is a goddess in your garden.
So I have a guardian angel and it comes in the form a cat. sweet
oh mY GOD.
This reminds me of the dragon in “How to train your dragon” when he was trying to smile. Someone add the gif omfg
no don’t do that
I just nearly sprayed coffee all over..wow..

this horse is going to give me nightmares holy fuck
THIS IS THE BEST THING THAT FREAKING EVER HAPPENED.
I’d be okay if I died right now because now I’ve seen it all
Sooo happy to see this again. This is my favorite thing ever
don’t do that
I don’t understand how it’s seen as cruelty to kennel a dog all of the time or not let it out of the house, etc but it’s seen as acceptable for horses to be stalled 24/7 and when people do speak against it, they get torn apart with…
somebody asked me for insight into my super complex editing process
seriously I have no idea what I’m doing
just a note, the ‘cinemascope’ thing I use in picassa is great for convenience to get a base setting down but it does fuck up the quality. I’m not to worried about adjustability since clearly you can adjust it in PS however the same effects of ‘cinemascope’ can be created through curves and levels in PS. Since these were photos for a friend and didn’t involve cropping (if you are going to crop and use a preset setting like that, crop first.) I just let it go. However, for other people, if I’m getting paid, etc etc I do not use presets and I don’t recommend it; it can mess with the quality, and while there is still adjustability there are certain things that can’t be changed and are stuck; its better to customize each edit to the photo. I’m not a professional and these are not professional quality so it wasn’t a huge deal, but yeah
anyway haha this is pretty much what I do for a lot of my tumblr-y photos.
levels and curves. si.
somebody just sent me a message sort of asking about this?
Most of the thoroughbred farms you visit in Lexington are awash in luxury. Their stallions live in stalls that are more like palaces, in facilities whose very construction sets a standard most people never experience.
Not at Claiborne. At Claiborne these horses live in barns that have stood for nearly a century. Visit a breeding shed that is little more than four walls and a dirt floor. Everything here is simple. They do things the way they’ve done things for centuries. At Claiborne it’s not what you see - it’s what you feel.
What makes this farm great lives in the soil. It lives in the air. In the memory of legends, whose foot falls still echo on the pavement if you listen hard enough. History permeates the walls of the simple white barns with yellow trim. One single stall has seen the likes of Bold Ruler. Secretariat. Easy Goer. And Unbridled. One stall. Walk along the shedrow and you’ll find countless other names that will stop a racing fan in their tracks, take their breath away. For just a moment, the legend comes to life, again for some, for the first time for others. For just a moment they come out of the pages of history and breathe again. They were real. This is where they lived. And you’re walking in their footsteps right now.
There is a cemetery next to the main office, one of three on all that acreage, that’s girded by a well-kept hedge. Inside, a courtyard of headstones bear the names of two Triple Crown winners, five Kentucky Derby winners, and some of the greatest stallions this sport has ever seen. I’ve never been here and not seen roses on the final resting place of Secretariat. Here, in this place, he will never be forgotten.
Claiborne Farm is unique in the Bluegrass. It’s a place out of time. The farm you see today is little changed from a hundred years ago. Drive past the gate and you enter a place where racing is still in its heyday. There are different heads peeking out from over those stalls. New coats of paint on the wood. But the same spirit endures. And hopefully always will.
