Attended the last day of a three-day antique sale today. What a surprise. Found this wonderful, old cast iron Chinese Tang-style horse.

P.S. Twenty-six years ago I was fascinated with photographs of museum pieces in books. In the early days, I took photographs using studio lights and soft boxes, then moved into using natural light. I love still life images and thoroughly enjoy the challenge of shooting them. This horse image sums up the process.
I am pleased with how this journey has played itself out and look forward to doing more. So...the "eureka" is for two things...first, finding this piece at a very reasonable price and second, being able to capture it backlit.
Wishing you all happy shooting!
