This image is one of my all-time favorites, not only because it was one of those rare, magical moments where the polar bear was actually swimming and visible from the underwater viewing area, and with beautiful light and reflections. But my son is one of the children in awe of this mighty animal.
As a side-note, I made this image with only an iPhone, and an older one at that (I think the iPhone 5). It was one of those moments I really wished I would have brought my “real” camera with me but it just goes to show you the best camera is the one you have.

Simply 2016 Photography Exhibition | With Juror David J. Carol at The Center for Fine Art
Photography Runs Through March 26th, 2016 | Simply 2016 is an exhibition highlighting artists’
ability to capture the everyday in an extraordinary way. Artists from around the world are being showcased
in this exhibition, juried by David J. Carol. This photography exhibition offers the chance to slow down and
appreciate the beauty in simplicity. Artist Pamela Joye captured striking reflected light in a particularly
atmospheric manner in Mirror Fountain. Her cheerful, energetic subjects continue with their lives
unbeknownst of the beauty in the details of their play. Phillippa Stannard uses composition and perspective
to bring the viewer into the shot. Others artists use heavy color saturation to stop the viewer in their tracks
such as Andrew Miller’s piece, Park Fountain. Shaking the life into the commonplace, the artists have taken
mundane visuals and elevated them to entice and inspire. Join us in exploring this spectacular expression
of ordinary turned extraordinary in the Main Gallery until March 26th, 2016. Always free, public welcome.
