To be honest, the first photo is a mistake. The action happened fast, and the horse came at me before I could retract the zoom. Looking through the lens, I had no idea just how close to me the horse was, and the girl had to crank the horse's head around to avoid running over me. The camera caught the action of the photograph quite well because yes, it is all in the hands.
The second photo is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek thing. The warning sign over the busted out chair couldn't be more appropriate.
