White Elephant Gift 230 by yospyn
Now is the winter of our discontent. While we may have just narrowly escaped a blizzard, it’s still colder than a polar bear’s pajamas on the shady side of an iceberg. So while you could go outside with your camera gear, brave this miserable weather, and take blurry photos of Christmas lights, I recommend staying indoors and experimenting with your immediate surroundings.
One of my favorite old photography tricks is to shoot something that is completely out of its element, like a fish out of water if you will. For example, this shark should be eating baby seals off the coast of South Africa, not tickling the ivories with his coffee stained teeth. He should be terrorizing other fish in the ocean, not playing “Happy Birthday” on a Yamaha. I blame this odd behavior on global warming, or in our case, global cooling.
So wrap yourself up in a Snuggie, grab your camera gear, and show that shark who’s boss. Before you know it the cherry blossoms will be blooming.
