• This one was a tough cookie… I liked Ricardo’s photograph but, for the life of me I couldn’t get inspired by it. 🙂 So, this morning I launched a crowd sourcing for follow up ideas. 🙂
    A few ideas did pop up and the winner, to whom I promised to give credits, was Jorge Salgueiro. Jorge is a long, long time Portuguese friend from Porto, he is a biologist by education, a translator by necessity, a all round genius by nature. Among other very relevant things he had this to say about Ricardo’s photograph: “at first glance, this looks like a peaceful image of nature; however, it depicts a predator stalking for prey; for the unsuspecting frogs in the water, it’s literally death from above. with that in mind, the elegance of the neck becomes an image of tension, poised to strike with lightning speed, and the peaceful imagery gains menacing, almost jurassic, overtones. things hardly ever are what they seem.”
    I couldn’t resit and two hours later, during my lunch break, I went Jurassic… 🙂
