A Photoshoot, in my mind, is an active scene that is frozen in time. While at the zoo my son-in-law witnessed a scuffle between two pelicans. One pelican had a fish in its mouth and the fish slipped out. A second pelican waiting on the side stepped in and caught the fish. The struggle took place in an instant. It was a small event to the observer but an enormous incident to the birds. The fish didn’t have a chance in this combat zone! Such drama!|
I based my quilt on a photo of the scene, which was taken by Yosef Zuckerman.
