Monroe, Crow and Owl

I enjoy how Marilyn Monroe is sitting on a merry-go-round while engrossed in a James Joyce novel, a difficult read. Monroe is reading a challenging novel while in a child like atmosphere.

The convergence of these two contrasting elements is a nice touch. This picture shows that off screen Monroe is not the dumb blonde she plays in films; however, the inner child still lives within in (reading on a merry-go-round).            
Also, the faded blue and orange bars on the merry-go-round mesh well with her multi-colored tank-top. If you look in the background you can see that the leaves on the trees are a tad blurry, indicating that the photographer was capturing Monroe in motion on the merry-go-round. That must have been a hard shot to take. I wonder how may shots the photographer took before he was satisfied.                                                                                                                                                                    
This owl is beyond adorable. This white lil-fella is the only part of the photograph that is in focus. I couldn’t find the artist of this photograph so i named it “I See You.”

This photographer must have been at the right place at the right time because you don’t typically see owls or them playing hide and seek. I love black and white photos. Oh, and owls. This picture is a cute one.


The Modern Landscape/Photo by Nicholas Bagaev, 1969
When i first saw this picture i couldn’t keep my eyes off of the crow on top of a 50s radio.  I like how the crow is curious and peering down at the radio. I assume the radio was on. This photo has a shallow depth of field where the crow, radio and bits of grass are in focus. My favorite part about this photo is the crows curiosity.
