Standpoint

“Art often isn’t [nice] though it scrubs the soul fresh” – Jim Harrison

Power without thought.

Conditioned reflex, instinct.

Lioness

Eyes fixed.

No prayer – no remorse.

Tight-lipped.

Tight-jawed.

Tightly holding on.

 

Survival.

 

 

Buffalo calf turned aside.

Tightly gripped.

Eyes fixed.

 

Dead.

 

 

Intense moment camera caught.

Tight focus.

Tight grip.

Pursed lips.

Eyes wet, fixed.

 

Art.

  1. The repetition of ‘tight’ and the choppy phrases add to the moment that this represents. This is a great prompt when coupled with those photos, isn’t it! I like how you took conscience out of the scene – very ferel!
