#21 DRINKING THE MOON (on black 1:1.25)
Somehow when a giraffe stoops to take a drink, it combines the improbable attributes of gracefulness and awkwardness. The drinking giraffe was photographed at the zoo in Oakland, CA while the moon was photographed from my patio in Castro Valley, CA. By stretching the moon into an ellipse and tinting it blue it makes a perfect pool to refresh the giraffe.
