Behind the Photo: Maymont Goose

by

comment

Years ago in journalism school we could photograph almost anything except ducks. Too easy. So for years I’ve avoided waterfowls for fear of ridicule from other photographers.

But I couldn’t resist this goose in the Japanese Garden at Maymont. The perfect plumage and soft water ripple caught my eye. I lifted my iPhone overhead and hoped for the best.

This angle is unique so I imagine I’ll get little grief from the photography community.
