Hi Carver, i jus discovered how making pics in monochrome spices up the effects of a pic :) It is fun.

That must be living history indeed. A nice composition.

Aileni said...

That was lucky - something to do with the museum, no doubt. A fine looking mule.

This picture sets off the monochrome perfectly :)

fun pic, I want to make a joke but can't think of any!

Regina said...

Really good, all the subject in one photo.

The Mule does look in good shape, mono is perfect for this shot...

James said...

Very nice catch and perfect for the theme.

Dagrun said...

Historical mule no doubt. Nice in b&wh too! :)

I don't understand. I haven't seen anything like that here. You are so lucky! I've seen that type of transportation in the old country :) Is that part of the exhibition?

ellievellie said...

It is amazing. The cart has a white bow - looks like an old time gypsy wedding on the Balkans - just not something I've seen here! Great shot!

ellievellie said...

My husband's comment - Cabriolet! :)
May be it is a new business and we can take carriage rides now :)

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting and I thought although I answered ellieveille on their site, I'd also answer here in case anyone else is interested. Basically I don't know why the mule and cart were there. It surprised me but I thought either it had to do with the museum or some new attraction being offered downtown. The mule sure seemed laid back about pulling the cart downtown. I didn't think about the bow but maybe it was part of a wedding or something else.

ellievellie said...

Yep! You are right - it is a service - $10 ride through Downtown - they also give them for rent for weddings. Very funny - The history museum was the perfect place to shoot one ! Great info!

I don't get to see mule (or even horses) and carriages often in my part of the world! I like this shot.

Howdy Carver!

This is just so precious and I love the way you know that it was taken in NORTH CAROLINA! We've got 4/37 entries on Monochrome week!

Robin said...

Fun place to catch it - definitely suits the photo.

Dan said...

This is the moment when your are happy for bringing your camera... Nice shot;-)

Greyscale Territory said...

This is almost like a history crossroads! Fascinating!
