Time Out

During the Nelson Arts Festival week, I found this guy cruising in CBD. Today he was parked on Bridge Street. I couldn’t resist taking a snap.

The Festival ends tomorrow.

  3. Thanks GiuCe and Zsolt72!

    No, I did not know (Sorry Kris), but I found one on late September in Kris's blog. It's quite similar.

  5. That man looks so lonely, but I am sure his horse is one of his best friends.

  10. Thank you all,

    The first time I noticed him (few days before taking this photo) was the sound of the horse coming form behind me.
    It was a strange feeling hearing that sound among cars passing by.
