Focus

15 01 2021

Possibly other photographers would cull this image because of the dead – distracting? – sunflower stalk marring the lovely lines of Chipeta’s face. Maybe I’m just ornery, but I like it. Maybe it’s a reminder of summer, and given the awfulness of this winter (drydrydry), I’m in no hurry to get back to summer, but I still like it.

Is the rest of the image enough to draw your eye away from the bright, dead-center, dead-old sunflower stalk? Is Chipeta beautiful enough? Her coat fuzzy enough, the lift of her stepping leg strong enough, her nostril just-so-cocked enough, her pretty self aware enough … to focus your distraction on HER?

It’s enough for me. πŸ™‚

It’s rare that she’s coming toward me. Maybe she thought I was guarding a particularly juicy patch of snow. πŸ™‚
