The elements

Isn’t that one of the most arresting horse photos you’ve ever seen? It was taken by Wojtek Kwiatkowski; see a bigger version here along with more of his fantastic work.

And, er, um, hi again. :) Yeah, I’m back, and I do plan and sticking around for a bit this time; I’ve got several articles I’m researching at the moment, which will be posted in due course along with the usual drivel and filler. ;) Might even be a book giveaway/contest in the future! It was gratifying to see that even while I was away, Bridlepath was still garnering several hundred (or more) hits a day; thank you all for reading it, adding it to your blogroll, telling your friends and so on. I’m catching up on updating my links, so if you asked for one, it will appear. Soon. Ish.

A few people have asked me about the header image I’m using. It’s The Horse Fair (1853-55) by French artist Rosa Bonheur. The full painting is below; click to embiggen.

So, now that I’m back…anything I should know about? What would you like to see more of? Less of?

A different kind of wooden horse

How time-consuming is *that*?!

From kiwipulse via Digg:

On August 8, 41 year-old Albania artist Saimir Strati works on a portrait of the steed at the International Centre of Culture in Tirana. It is reported that Saimir Strati is attempting to use 1 million toothpicks to mount a steed chart together on 8 square meters board. He is known for working on a portrait of Leonardo Da Vinci using industrial nails at the International Centre of Culture in Tirana.
