Occasionally I manage to take a photo with some artistic value… surely if the concept of “art” can be stretched to include paint thrown onto a canvass by an elephant, it can apply to some of my photography.
Technical Stuff: Mostly I looked down… at some point I must have moved my feet out of the way. I honestly do not remember the ground being that purple. I know it wasn’t a topsoil kind of black, but this off-colour thing is more accident than anything else. Which is totally cool, I think most of those elephant artists accomplish their work the same way and I’d definitely hang their stuff on my wall.
I like the little dash of red on the left hand side and the patterns in the purple soil. I think it’s actually that little purple half-smile swirl around the flower that gives the photo a little more energy than it otherwise would have had… look at me going on like I was an artistic elephant. I did do a pretty good job at centring the big fluffy yellow thing against the huge dark background. That’s a step up.
