The little albino by gilad The little albino by gilad

I am what I am
I may have what I need
Still, I want what I want
To be anyone but me

You look at me and think
"Isn't he special?"
Being different is not what I want
It is what I am

So feast on my sweetness
And if you must, then grin at my face
but things are never as simple as they seem
Well, at least they are not simple in my case


*****

Isn't he sweet?
I was thinking that. but I was also feeing something deeper, like I expressed in the poem.

I took this near a Bedouin camp, right next to Zeelim.
You can see it was taken from a very low angle, and from a short distance. It took me a while to build confidence with these guys :)

Under-exposed with fill flash (SB800), to get that deep colours.

nice shot.

I understand what you mean about the underexposure for the colours, but i'm wondering how you used the flash whitout the light splashing over everything that as close...

did you use a snoot pointed at the albino sheep.

by the way, I REALLY like the dept of hte colours. nice work.

I have no idea how i ran across this picture but i think its beautiful. I sent it to my husabdn who wouldnt leave his game because he didnt want to see a "stupid goat" and "they are ugly". Me and the person i showed bet him that we would not be able to tell me that this goat was ugly. So Of couse he was like i doubt it. So finally opens the link and was like hmm. I was like tell me that that goast isnt adorable and he was like "ok i guess your right, hes so cute". So thank you for a beautiful picture and for getting a big tough man to admit the cuteness of a small goat :) (And that I was right
