Creative Photography #2



Roger of Idaho Photo is holding his Second Creative Photography contest for us to participate in.

We contribute a creative photo in the week and Roger will announce the winner on Friday morning.



My offering for this week is my thoughtful gorilla who lives in the Bronx Zoo, N. Y. I chose black & white and I blurred the surrounding trees. I liked the way the light fell on the gorilla's face and body.

I like what you've done. This makes me think of some photos I have in a wildlife book published by Teddy Roosevelt! Great work, Mary.

The black and white tones add to the mystery of the gorillas thoughts. Beautiful capture!

I feel a bit nostalgic-I spent every childhood summer at the Bronx Zoo and I miss it sooo much-I am looking forward to bringing my boys there as soon as we get back to NY, but I digress...

I love this gorilla's rotund belly and that you chose b/w. He looks very thoughtful. A captive photo!

Dianne said...

he is one handsome dude!

the B&W was a brilliant choice.

Lois Grebowski said...

He looks quite pensive... kinda reminds me of Hubby Hank... bwahahahahahahahahaha...

Great photo!
