Pleased to Meet You

Posted on Thu 2nd Feb, 2006, 9:15pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/80, Aperture: f/4,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: Minor,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 24mm,
Captured: 10th January 2006, 2:23pm,

This was painted on the wall of a kids' playground near where I work. There were several other animals too but the crocodile (or alligator, I don't know how to tell them apart) was easily the most eye-catching.

I keep thinking the focus is a little off because of the way the texture of the wall appears to blur immediately in front of the eye but I think it's just the plaster (or whatever) on the wall itself.

That said, a bit more depth of field probably wouldn't have gone amiss. In my defence, it was very dark that afternoon and there wasn't much to choose from by way of apertures.

First person to comment gets to choose a name for the crocogator.

I quite like it, though I feel I would quite like to see the bottom of the crocs jaw. Since I'm probably going to be first I suggest "Monsieur Croque".

Arggh! Run!

crocs have longer slimmer jaws.

Yeah well you can't see any more of his jaw, so there. Only if you pay me a tenner.
