Glimpse

Carriage Horses, Old Town, Krakow, Poland  © Doug Hickok
(Velvia slide film)



While walking around the old city of Krakow one summer day, camera in hand, I decided to explore an open door that led to a long hallway. Finding a dead end there, I turned around toward the street, attracted by the sound of clip-clopping hooves. As I looked-up, I happened to glimpse a tandem of horses pulling a carriage. I made this quick image through the door just as the horse closest to me stepped forward.

    Saw any Pineapple Cathedral there?

    They call me Jane, that's not my name.
