A Zoo

Swimming to the Sky - Tim Irving
You have to practice your craft. Preferably daily with set hours. If not every day, then two or three days a week. As a painter you'll waste reams of paper, as a photographer you will produce thousands of worthless photographs, not to mention the time and effort spent.   

I've had an idea for several months that I should photograph a flamingo. I've done several drawings, played with colours and I know it will work, but I just can't find the right location. Today's zoo was no exception. After a long drive I find good flamingos, insanely peachy pink, but in the worst setting possible. Never mind, I console myself with a sea lion.

  1. And this photo was meant to be taken. Very Magritte. I like it!
