Alas, I'm restricted to a cholesterol-free diet.

I'm not sure I want to say exactly "cheesy," but Elliott McDowell makes exquisite pieces that do not suffer from the more common forms of artistic pretense.

And I ran into this piece while turning a corner at Andrew Smith Gallery in Santa Fe.  I must say I like it.  They don't claim it online, and I can't remember who the artist is but my hat's off.

A bit in the shade, sorry, shadow, but is that horse on the left a male? I'm confused: at best, a waste of a good pair of breasts.

Why do this? Because someone can?

Or just horses for courses?

Motive #1 for taking a photograph is usually that it can be done.  "Target of opportunity" apples nowhere better than to photography.  If we stopped taking photographs merely because we could, the noise level would go way down.

And leave it to an old Pirelli guy to detect anatomical anomalies!

Thanks for the compliment, but the closest I got to Pirelli was the tyres and a calendar or two on the wall. No such shoots. I wish!
