Animal Spirit

I took this photo back in February and came oh so close to trashing it.

Even though the subject is blurred, I love the texture, or aura, surrounding them.

The animal spirit speaks to me … like a vision in a dream … ELUSIVE


Elusive by Merriam-Webster:

Tending to elude: as
a : tending to evade grasp or pursuit <elusive prey>
b : hard to comprehend or define
c : hard to isolate or identify
All three define what I see, FEEL when I study this photo.
What do you think? … and no, I haven’t been in the locoweed! 🙂

18/52 “That’ll do, donkey”

This little donkey seemed so friendly. I think he thought I was going to feed him. The two horses in the pasture bolted but he came right up to the fence and stuck his nose all up in my business. I tried stepping from side to side to get a good profile, and hopefully good eye to eye contact, but when I moved right, he moved right. When I moved left, he moved left. I think he wanted to eat my dangling lens cap. When I didn’t deliver, he gave me this “donkey on the edge” look, so I took the shot, said “That’ll do, donkey” and in two shakes of a donkey tail, I bolted.

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.

Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.
