Thematic Photographic #161 --- White

Just hours ago Carmi posted the Thematic Photographic for this week --- white.  I'm not usually quite so quick to respond, but I recently took some photos at the zoo and just happen to have.....

A White Tiger


This beautiful animal is at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska.  In addition to his unusual coat, his ice blue eyes are so captivating.  This fellow was enjoying a cat nap (sorry, just had to say it) as were most of the other lions and tigers and bears while we were there.  Just a bit of a plug -- there are more photos in my facebook album.

As Carmi pointed out, white is often a difficult "color" to capture.  I've done many weddings and whether they are indoors or outdoors, the white gowns throw the light which makes it tricky to capture the details of the dress  That's another reason why I chose to post the white tiger instead!  In any case, you will enjoy this challenge.  White after Labor Day??  You betcha!

This photo - incredible, by the way - reminds us all of why life is so miraculous. In my wildest dreams, I couldn't imagine such beauty being drawn in the form of an animal. Yet when I look around me, I see it in virtually everything that moves. People, dogs, zoo animals...you name it.

You've reminded me that I need to look for that beauty no matter what I'm up to. Just lovely!
