There are some species of animals with which we human animals seem to share an unusual affinity. Dolphins, Chimps, Gorillas, Dogs and cats of course. Among them surely is the Beluga. Like dolphins one can’t help but feel that we can see common expressions on their faces. This image captures not only the expression of the Beluga but the affinity between the Beluga and a young boy. Further to the point, the Beluga’s fin appears to reach out to the boy as well.
Boy and Beluga whale seem to be communicating through the glass of the Aquarium in Newport Rhode Island.

Wayne D. King’s images are a celebration of life, blending the real and the surreal to achieve a sense of place or time that reaches beyond the moment into a dreamlike quintessentialism designed to spark an emotional response. Using digital enhancement, handcrafting, painting, and sometimes even straight photography, King seeks to take the viewer to a place that is beyond simple truth to where truth meets passion, hope and dreams.
