Life in Mexico is always interesting. As I was driving to the shop to pick up the girls for our photoshoot, I noticed a horse walking down the main road into town. I have to admit, this is not a completely uncommon occurrence in Sayulita, but the horse would usually be being cautiously followed by a man with a rope. This horse however, was just wandering alone right down the middle of the street. I was especially intrigued because I was thinking what great photos it would make if I could somehow commandeer this horse. The horse was gorgeous, a sleek black with grey, brown and white spots. With horses on my brain, I picked up the girls and we proceeded to the spot I had picked out for the shoot. A rustic rodeo grounds just outside of town. The grounds were breathtaking. It had been lightly raining off and on all day so the sky had a grey-ish look to it with intermixed sunny spots. Being the rainy season, the vegetation was overflowing in all directions, and the grounds looked like a fluorescent green blanket had been laid down. The shoot was going great (as pouring rain could have burst from the sky at any moment ruining the leather purses we were photographing). We were almost finished when I looked over to the right and to my utter delight that horse from the street appeared. I thought maybe the corona I just drank had literally gone straight to my brain, but it was in fact that very same horse. I knew my chance had arrived.. I told my model and my photographer to head the horse off on one side and I would try to steady it on the other. This horse was very skiddish, I think it must have been on the wander for a while. It took some effort but eventually we were able to sneak a few photos of the gorgeous, wild and free creature. I thought maybe, just for a moment, that I manifested this whole course of events. Probably just a stroke of luck, mixed with an openness for the unexpected opportunity when working with nature.
