Silently she slips below the glassy surface. She is home.
The use of negative space can be powerful in an image. It can inform and create mystery, both. Here, the expanse of water and relative void of colour add to the silence heard in the whale's descent home. We understand that her home is greater in size than we see and we're also left wondering what home is like for her.


  1. Like the detail on the prairie, the image in negative space and greyscale is completed in our imagination. I like this image a lot. Even the tail suggests the other 95% of the creature.

  2. I thought it was a mermaid tail :O
