There's a photo talked about among my Facebook friends that has reminded people of the best photograph I ever took. The image that's being talked about is this one of a little frog peering from the mouth of a fish that's just gulped it up. Photographer Angus James took it while fishing and saw the little frog when he pulled the hook out of the fish's mouth. Very cool photo.
My shot below is the image people are comparing it to. Shot for the Anchorage Daily News it is the final image in my book "Snap Decisions: My Thirty Years as an Alaska Newspaper Photographer. You can buy the book here (I can personalize it), or from Amazon.
In the book, here's what I said about the image. "The coolest thing about this photo is that it is what photographers call an “original image”— one that no photographer has ever taken before. You can go a whole career in photography and never get one. To make a photo like this so late in my career left me feeling my years of hard work had finally paid off."
This is what my photo looked like when it was published in Sports Illustrated in 2004.
