So, one of the things I’m supposed to photograph for the Scavenger Hunt is a turkey. I thought about photographing the cooked Thanksgiving turkey, but decided against it since 1) my photographed food always looks wonkier than “food magazine” food, and 2) we were going to a friend’s house for Thanksgiving. I didn’t want to get in the way with my camera.
So, here’s my interpretation of a turkey. Enjoy!
In the finished work of art, the turkey appears to be vainly trying to escape a fireball. No doubt this is intended by the artist to be a metaphor for the juxtaposition of hope and dispair in the holiday season.
