My goal every day is to take a picture that is good enough to add to my folder labeled Best. Currently this folder has 523 pictures out of 75,000 on my camera. I really like this picture we took today, for many reasons. Primarily, Tino is beautiful and I love him. I was trying to add visual interest by having him in front of the sculpture, but it actually worked out much better than planned. The angles of the bars echo the angles of his ears, and the triangles on his chest. The reflection in the water turned out better than it appeared to the naked eye. My iPhone chose just the right aperture to keep Tino’s whole body in focus and blur the sculpture. Without the blur, it could have seemed like his body was being pierced by metal poles. The visual separation of the blur makes Tino distinct, and the sculpture echoes his angles without detracting from his beauty. I was trying for a good photo, but it accidentally turned out much better than planned. Hence the 75,000 pictures and 523 Best.
