15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The sadness of a goodbye
Whale Sad eyes
This photo was taken on Seaside Oregon beach. It had come to the beach a big fish and it was a whale. She looked exhausted and flipped her body for help. It was a heavy rainy day. Hard to help, there was almost no one.
I just aimed to photograph his eyes and know that it was dying. I also understood that there was sadness in his eyes. That is what I captured and felt that the animals also express their feelings. Even the ones that we can't see easily everyday. I realized that, when I saw the photograph at home.
