Say Cheese

Say Cheese: Lamb or Beef? Sheep and calf pose for the camera

I find that most animals aren’t keen on having their photograph taken. Whenever I say, “say cheese”, they inevitably turn around and walk/run away. Consequently, I have a lot of photos of animals’ backsides. Actually, I have that effect on most people too (fortunately without the backsides). I’m just not a portrait photographer. You’ll never see a white background in one of my photographs.

Whenever people see my camera, they assume I shoot weddings and portraits. I can’t think of anything worse, apart from being speared through the chest, maybe. Photographers are part of a broad church. In fact, I have observed quite a few sub-species of the genus. I feel another ‘nature’ project coming on.
