Pics that Make You Feel

What type is it???


#268

Don’t know. I’d guess from the size it could be a right whale, it looks like some variety of baleen whale at any rate. Doing a google image search might reveal more.

Google image indicates that the image has been “around” and is understood to be a blue whale somewhere in the Pacific. That’s all I can learn about it.

Blue whales are the largest animal to have ever existed. They’re up to 30 metres long.

Holy cow!

Great Whites do jump for food, and often breach when hunting.

I’ve seen a photo credit to Bob Burton of the National Geographic. But then, there is this:

Either way, it’s a neat image.

I suppose, but it raises the question of why one would chop an image that could more simply just be photographed. It seems perverse.

The great Man Ray once observed (not an exact quote) I paint what cannot be photographed, that which comes from the imagination or from dreams, or from an unconscious drive…I photograph the things that I do not wish to paint, the things which already have an existence.
