The Elephant in the Room

By SlowSong
One of those video art installations of an elephant rolling around and doing tricks. And a tourist having his photograph taken in front of the screen.

V1 is just my interpretation.
V2 is the wider story.

V1 is clever. I think I might crop tighter at the top, to get rid of the black triangle? But that loses the square...
Reminds me irresistibly of the Blue Peter baby elephant though...

I like V2 Chris - but I thought the same as Moira- I think V1 would be even better for cropping at the top.

I scrolled the image - I think its trunk and feet would give an air of mystery.Wink

And very well interpreted, too, and the crop will make all the difference.
