Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

The places that we pass through day after day, or even once in a lifetime, leave in their small way, echoes and traces of themselves upon us. But so often when taking self portraits or pictures of friends, the places themselves become a soft blurred mush of indistinct semi-nothingness, the limelight stolen by our smiling faces. In today’s challenge, let’s turn the tables. Take a picture of someone as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or the foreground, the center of attention.

– so Pick challenges us.

In this photo I tried to capture the fascination on the guy’s face, while he watches the grim spectacle of a snake feeding on an (already dead) rat. It’s the way of nature, for to the snake this prey is as normal as a steak is to us: supper.
