Photography 101: Connect


Photography 101 assignment: In this age of social media, we hear the word connect more often, don’t we? Connect with us on Facebook! Connect with me on LinkedIn! Given what today’s technologies can do, it feels like the world is getting smaller, and we’re more connected than ever before.

There are many ways to interpret this theme: from a gadget to a handshake, from a bridge to a gathering among friends. What’s yours?

Mine cuts through the connectivity of the internet and all its apps to something more visceral – contact between a mother and child at its most necessary.  There cannot be anything more important than this….

This picture was taken on Kangaroo Island, South Australia at Seal Bay.  When we first saw the seals we thought lazy animals just lying around in the sun.  What we didn’t realise until the park rangers informed us, was that the adult seals go out for days at a time to sea foraging for food all the while leaving their young at home unprotected.  They stay at home to rest before heading back out again.  Not a life I would wish for.  They are beautiful animals though.
