Over the holidays I found a photo album at my grandmother's house that was full of black and white horse and dog pictures from the 1950s. A loose picture fell out and it seemed as if it was speaking to me, although it was silent.
When I look at this, I see all the excitement in the faces of the participants. It must have been such a special day - one that had to be preserved for everyone on film.
I zoomed in a bit to get a closer look at the dogs, the horses, and the joyfulness of the day.
I don't know the details of the event - whether a fox was hunted or whether they were just out for a ride with their horses and dogs. I don't know if someone took a tumble over a fence, or if the ladies had a contest to see who made the best pie. But I do know I seem to have inherited the horse loving gene that goes way back in my family. A part of me knows that this day is something I'm sorry to have missed - no doubt it was full of wonderful adventure! And I suspect that whoever took this picture and saved it all those years would be pleased as punch to see it shared with my readers today. Because it was, indeed, a day to remember.
This post is my entry for the 'One
Picture From My Photo Album' contest conducted by My Yatra Diary and CupoNation. Three bloggers I think should enter because they have a wonderful way with photos and words would be Buttons Thoughts, Chillin With Jill, and Bringing Along OCD. Entries have a chance to win an Amazon gift card, so if you're a blogger with a fun picture of a memory sitting in a drawer, you should jump in and participate!
