2005-05-05 - Portrait of a Roo

This is one of my earlier "good" kangaroo photos, taken last September. I like it because of the angle - the kangaroo just stood there, side-on, almost as if posing for a profile shot. I was expecting it to turn and hop away or possibly turn to fully face me. I'm glad it didn't do either.

Ela I really like this shot for a few reasons: firstly because of its simplicity. As most of your photos, this one is also very “clean” and has a strong and defined subject – this definitely appeals to my taste. I also like the composition of the picture – the fact that you cannot see the whole kangaroo; and I love the warm colours and the way the background corresponds with the subject.
I feel like reaching out and stroking his fur! :)
