snake eyes by Ted Petrovits

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

a little friend i found on the sidewalk at the last motel (Deland florida) Aug 09., I spent the night at. so of course I took him in and took some pics and let him spend the night. I turned him loose the next day. i couldnt get him to open his mouth or strike at the camera. oh well I hope there is another one just around the corner soon.

    Cool shot, Ted… I like the way the blur draws my eyes to his stare…
    I assume the blurring is caused by his movement, as it happens inconsistantly throughout the depth of field… makes the photo real.
