"...we ran him at many a meeting
at crossing and gully and town,

and nothing could give him a beating-
at least when our money was down.

for weight wouldn't stop him, nor distance,

nor odds, though the others were fast,

he'd race with a dogged persistence,
and wear them all down at the last."

...from banjo patterson's
'old pardon, the son of reprieve.'

sweet huh?

my '66 minolta 7s too

    Another really great shot. The width of the shot and your distance to the rider really grabbed me - I think it's perfect.

    If it was a camel Petey.....I'd be guessing it was taken at Byron. But it's not, it's a horse, so I'm not guessing at all. Bloody nice shot though mate.
