Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction.


Refraction happens when a light bounces from one thing to another like a pinball. Instead of twanging noise, the light gets softer than sun, it’s bounced and sprinkled and spread thin so that when we see it through the filter of our own eyes, there’s a sweetness between the glare and the shadow.

When light gets refracted through a horse to his rider, the pair is lifted and joined. It’s forthright, yet secret. Literal, yet sheer magic.

WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo- I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high tech.

This blog is free, and it always will be. Free to read, but also free of ads because I turn away sponsorships and pay to keep ads off my site. I like to read a clean page and think you do too. If you appreciate the work I do, or if your horse does, consider making a donation.

  1. If I’m lucky I’ll be able to retire to a farm. Sadly, I think I’ll be retiring to an assisted living home. I think living on a farm definitely is in a past that has passed me by……….

    • My long term retirement plans involve being taken out to the muck pile. They will have to pry my muck fork from my cold, dead hands. 🙂
