According to Buddha

Deep down, fundamentally, we are the ‘unborn’. We never came into being and we never go out of being. All of these coming and goings are just pulses in the pattern.

margery’s dreaming of the middle of the day
tiyuri to win
perfect dozen to place
money is the matter that’s been on her mind
time ticks by her one race at a time
she’s tryin’ to be a good girl
and give ’em what they want
but margery’s dreaming of horses


Northlands Park Racetrack and Casino, Thoroughbred Racing ~ September 2017

  1. Nice set of black & whites…sepia tones give them a timeless quality. Was it really 2017 or 1956? 🙂 Happy mid-week, Hedy!

    • i’ve been trying new lightroom methods/styles and it’s fun for me…and yes horse racing seems like a timeless sport…it was such a warm afternoon the b/w seemed to miss part of my mood…it was delightful to see ppl and horses…happy mid day back to you Mic! smiles 😀

  2. How wonderful this is! I love the picture with the horses racing. It could have been anywhere in time. Or maybe it hasn’t occurred yet! The horses aren’t born, the riders are only dreams of parents who will not excist in the next age. The buildings are particals of clay sleeping in the wide river. Only the clouds are there already, but clouds, as we all know, live to evaporate.

    • thank you kindly Peter 😀 and yes clouds live to evaporate…i like that 😀 i appreciate your thoughtful comment thank you! smiles hedy 😀

  3. Great post! I love black and white photography!

  4. And now, something completely different! 😉 For me, the story picks up at the 4th and quickens through to the end – I love the last two. Experimenting with processing is really fun, isn’t it? This was a good way to do it, kind of an eerie, otherworldly color palette for an odd sport that really is its own world.

    • i love how you say that Lynn 😀 it was new for me as i don’t typically do sepia work…but somehow the images worked in a historical sort of way to me…and yes it’s a world to its own…always fascinating to be somewhere new 😀 have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Very good work. Again.
    Margery’s dreaming of horses…
    Is there a story there?

    • always stories Brian…my life is a story…i write new chapters…and i’ll pinch a quote from Sylvia Plath 😀 her words often resonate with me…
      “I love people. Everybody. I love them, I think, as a stamp collector loves his collection. Every story, every incident, every bit of conversation is raw material for me. My love’s not impersonal yet not wholly subjective either. I would like to be everyone, a cripple, a dying man, a whore, and then come back to write about my thoughts, my emotions, as that person. But I am not omniscient. I have to live my life, and it is the only one I’ll ever have. And you cannot regard your own life with objective curiosity all the time…”

      compose a happy day ~ many smiles hedy 😀

      • A very… wide-encompassing text. I didn’t know Sylvia Plath. Never heard of her. Just read her life. What a shame. So young. And depression has a way of running in families. (I know). But her words remain. Thank you. (And her)

        • I found her work in the 90’s I’ve appreciated her words…I’ve had moments of melancholy…I’ve learned more about depression from friends…yes I agree her works are powerful…have a joyful day Brian ☺️

          • Merci Hedy. You too. Melancholy can be inevitable. Just have to shake it. Not always easy though.

          • for sure life is mundane so i work daily to cultivate happiness and then i have more joy to share…but of course i also experience moments of melancholy that’s how i know all the other emotions…be safe and well thinking of all the people of Mexico at this time especially <3

          • Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I do need to work harder on shaking the sadness… 🙂

          • i know feelings have feelings so i embrace them all and of course when we cultivate happiness we have more joy to share…i appreciate your thoughtful comments Brian…sending you all good things and a joy for some happy moments 😀 hedy ^_^

          • Thank you Hedy. Likewise.

  6. Nice photos. Good work.
