Derrick likes to tell a story (and I like to listen) about the album cover for Pink Floyd’s album Atom Heart Mother. This album features a picture of a cow.
The story goes that the reason that this picture was selected for the album cover is that no other picture says “cow” like this picture says “cow”.
It must be a great picture, because this album cover appears in A Clockwork Orange during the music shop scene.
“Enjoying that are you my darlin’? Bit cold and pointless isn’t it my lovely? What’s happened to yours my little sister?”
That bit aside, my goal was take a picture that says “frog”. At least now I have next February’s calendar picture out of the way.
Here are a few other pictures that hopefully say “frog” to you:
There is nothing as rewarding as coming home with a quality frog photo after a days mucking about in the mud. This is why the first test for applicants for Photography 139 Photo Assistants is frog spotting.
Feel free to go out to your local bog and give it a shot.
