Anything for Me?

This week’s topic is Beyond.

I chose a couple of oddball photos, not the prettiest or most artistic, but I think both are examples of the observer looking beyond the subject in the foreground.

Down the street from me is an old farm with many different kinds of animals…not necessarily typical farm animals in the U.S. Their pen is right on the street, so if you are walking by you can stop and look at the animals. Although the goats and sheep are typical, the emus are not, and in the background where the white building and red door appear, there are exotic birds, perhaps white peacocks? I can’t see what kind they are from the street, but they have huge white bodies and you can sometimes hear their unfamiliar calls when you pass by.


The other photo I chose was from last summer. As I was driving down the street when I saw an antique Ford Galaxie in front of me. I was happy when the light turned red and I had an opportunity to snap this photo. The traffic lights do not make it the most artistic shot, but I think with the road stretching out ahead of us, the viewer looks beyond the car to the rest of the wide intersection.
