Single Image Sunday: Fearless   27 comments

Like many Sundays I am posting an image that dovetails with this past Friday’s topic on negative space.  This is not a particularly great photo but it certainly draws your eye.  It’s also a reminder to myself that I do not include enough negative space in my people pictures.  In this picture the negative space is perfectly placed in the upper left quadrant.

A friend of mine brought his girlfriend along on a hike high up on Mount Hood and she turned out to be a mountain goat, totally fearless.  And it’s not like she’s particularly young (hope she’s not reading this!).  I used to have similar inclinations, but I’ve certainly mellowed.  Here she simply wanted to perch somewhere with a good view of Hood.  She seemed so relaxed up there, which you absolutely need to be in order to do it safely.  It made me very nervous!  I hope your weekend is going well.

  10. I would have been fearful for her as well. I bet she was not graceful getting down. 🙂


  11. Catching the moment is so often better than trying to make it. That really grabs your attention.

  14. Cool shot. Is that Hood and Adams in the background?

  17. Is that a tense muscle in her leg or are her legs muscular? It would have made me nervous to watch her. On the other hand, you realized a moment that surely draws people into the frame.

Please don't be shy; your words are what makes my day!
