This was taken in Bryant Park (behind the NY Public Library on 42nd street) and as I recall I was practicing panning the camera.

I like the bright colors and the somewhat spooky, surrealistic look of the photograph. The head of the horse is pretty much in focus, but pretty much nothing else is. The panning seems to have not only blurred the photograph, but also distorted it in ways that reinforce the surrealistic look, as do the strong shadows.

Once I got past the fact that not much of the picture is sharp I found I that rather like it.
