Back in the Saddle Again

In September 2017, I stopped adding content to this website in order to launch a travel blog, Everyday Wanderer. While that’s going strong (and even with Instagram) I sometimes miss the simplicity of posting just one photo each day with a little narrative. So, I’ve decided to start adding content to Shutterbug Sage once again. It may not be daily (been there, did that once upon a time when this was an active 365 project), but it will happen.

Standing tall outside the Massachusetts Statehouse in Boston, General Hooker is saddled up and causing controversy in the 21st century.

Meanwhile, a short walk from the Massachusetts Statehouse, George Washington is on his trusty steed greeting folks into the Boston Public Garden.

This statue of George Washington on horseback was designed by Thomas Ball in 1869. It stands at the western entrance to the Boston Public Garden.

Have you visited Boston? Do you have a favorite horse statue elsewhere in the United States or world? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

I love hearing from you!
