In bright sunny midday light some subjects just don't work well with normal color. The color actually becomes a distraction. Some subjects also really don't lend themselves to color photos either. This was one of those days where a good black and white image was able to much more effective at conveying a message from an image. In this case I just wanted to show off the power of the horse, and I think it worked.
I'm liking the people I've meet here in Dallas so far...nice town and people.
