Triangle of Fauna


I have more about the how-to of this photo in the Part 1 of the upcoming Midnight in Paris video! Both Miss Aniela and I are really looking forward to this thing!

Daily Photo – Triangle of Fauna

Sorry for the dumb name of this photo. I was feeling VERY lame when I made it up. Even here, into my third sentence, I still can’t come up with anything better. Either way, I hope you enjoy the photo!

    Casper – great analogy. I always love three things in a photo. Makes for an easy composition.

    Flora not fauna?

    Hi Trey,

    I feel like I’ve seen this photo before… in one of your online classes or a hangout perhaps?..dunno…

    I know that you were not thrilled with “Triangle of Fauna” as a name for this photo, and try as I might I have yet to find any triangularly arranged ‘Animals’ in this picture. Perhaps that part of your Freudian brain would have been more content with ‘Triangle of Flora’ !?

    * “Flora is the plant life occurring in a particular region or time, generally the naturally occurring or indigenous—native plant life. The corresponding term for animal life is fauna.”
    (* Source: )

    I think that “Triangle of Fauna” is a great name. It made me think!
    I’m sure that you were just checking to see who was paying attention…

    Thanks for the fun!


  • Flora…

    Fun play, this picture. You could also (almost equally incorrect) call it “three trees”. I admit “Two trees and a shrub” is not catchy.

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks! 🙂

    hehe probably Flora! 🙂

    And yes – you may have seen this in the little video for Midnight in Paris.
