This is the largest Standardbred racehorse breeding farm in the world and it is only a few miles from where I live. The Standardbred is a horse breed best known for its ability in harness racing at a trot or pace. We chose this time of the year to visit so that we could see the new foals. The ones in the barn were recently born, I believe, the night before.
Some men from Homewood visited the farm and I used the opportunity to try some B&W images with my Leica X2. It was an ideal chance to try it in both low light and in extreme contrasts while inside the barns. Needless to say, I really liked the way the camera performed and I am looking forward to doing more and more of my photography with this camera.
