My photography group is full of such hypocrites. The theme for this quarter's photos was wildlife photography, and I thought I had this one in the bag for the exhibition showcase.
But no, because apparently roadkill doesn't count as a wildlife photo. That's simply absurd. If animals outside don't count as wildlife photography, what does? It cant be because they're dead, because I've seen enough artsy photos of skeletons and bones to last a lifetime. It cant be because there were raccoons either.
Joshua brought in a photo of raccoons on top of his trash cans when the theme was urban photography and everybody loved it. I am starting to think they just like Joshua, not his photos.
If I knew this photography group was going to just be a popularity contest, I never would have joined. The lighting and framing on my piece "Squirrel's Final Resting Place" was perfect!
