Photo of the day: Pony service

Thursday, August 2, 2012

I could create a whole separate blog around “Signs of the World” … one of my favorite photo subjects.  And here we have one of my favorite signs.  Nepal, particularly in the trekking areas, had some beautiful, enticing hand-painted signs, but this one topped them all in artistry and creativity.  Most “Pony Service” signs I saw (and there were lots) had a photograph of a jockey riding a horse pasted on, but here we have a hand-painted horse in motion, tail flowing in the wind, lending one to imagine gliding through the Himalaya on a sure-footed steed.

Taken along the Poon Hill trek near Pokhara, Nepal.
