Alex Riding High

Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 14 January 2012 in People & Portrait.

Alex is having fun. This shot was taken a few minutes after yesterday's. The following week, he grabbed the handles and tried to get the horse moving. He needed a bit of help but, he definitely has the idea. I used the clever Hipstamatic app on my iPhone for this shot.

Oh, he's definitely having fun now! Looks really great for coming from the Iphone 4s camera . . . don't think my 3gs could do even half that well.
