My belief is that photographs fall into two possible categories. The "what the" pictures that demand further enquiry and generally have an element of mystery or enigma. And then the others that I call "so what" pictures. These demand no response from the viewer who is unmoved and left yawning. This picture- two fresh chicks - in my opinion is a low level "what the" picture. What is going on here?. You can check that out by wandering through the Birkenhead shops in Auckland where the picture was made on Wednesday night. (I like the little red arrow sneaking into frame top left.)
