It is so much fun to take blasé pictures and try to make Photographic Art out of them. After all, my wise old grandmother said, as she sat at the dining room table cutting pictures apart and pasting them in her scrapbooks and photo albums, “What comes out of the camera is just the basics to start with.”
Here are two blasé pictures of desert bighorn sheep that were washed out and really horrible pictures, but they make pretty darn good Photographic Art.
These desert bighorn sheep are in a remote location in the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. It’s not an easy walk to where they are, so I suspect not too many people actually see these beautiful sheep.
The desert bighorn sheep is indigenous to the southwestern United States and the northern areas of Mexico. Interestingly, the total population of desert bighorn sheep is only about 20,000 yet their conservation status is listed as “least concern.” That I don’t understand.
They are superb climbers, using their climbing ability to escape mountain lions, coyotes, and bobcats, their main predators.
