What do you do when a buffalo is staring you in the face? Take a picture! At least, that’s what I did a few summers ago while touring Maxwell Wildlife refuge! 🙂 I think he thought my camera was food, to be fair. This is one of the very first photographs I took with my Nikon. I literally had to lean back in the truck to take it – this big guy was NOT shy.
I won a local photography contest through the Lawrence Journal World shortly thereafter, which gave me the confidence to open an etsy shop with a few photos from my time at Maxwell, and even turn a few of them into floating prints on metal. Connecting customers and clients directly is one of the reasons I love etsy! This photo has hands down been top seller in my humble little shop. The other day, I got a request for a custom order from Hollie, who has an amazing blog and even dedicated an entire post to this photo – check it out here! For her design purposes she wanted a large, black and white version of this photo. Here is the result:
Pretty cool, don’t you think? The photo is on its way to Hollie, and I can’t wait to see how it looks in her home!
