Strictly speaking, this post should be called "Horse Market - Part VI", but I have decided against it, because it really is only a very small collection of pictures I found special enough to make up their own post, not fully fitting into any of the other categories into which I have sorted the bulk of the parade pictures.
At the time of taking the pictures, I wasn't really thinking about what I was doing (as usual!), but when I looked at them all on my computer, I found that these had something about them that deserves a closer look.
I call this one "Pride":
The expression on the man's face (very authentical, by the way; men at court and elsewhere really wore make-up in the mid-1700s) is priceless:
Usually, I'm not one to coo over babies and little kids (I actually only coo over baby animals), but this little lad was completely focused on what he was doing, he seemed to be hardly aware of the crowds lining the street:
These two look so regal, don't they! Considering that this was nearly the end of the parade and they had been walking for almost 2 km in their costumes on a day that called for short sleeves and bare legs with most people, looking as happy as they do is no mean feat!
For now, this is the end of my Horse Market posts. There is still a collection of pictures with historical costumes waiting behind the scenes, but I'll show you these another time.
