Picasso's Horse

"Picasso's Horse"
Sometimes photography hands you a gift and this image is the latest for me.

Toy camera viewfinders are dodgy things, which makes composition a matter of guess work. Of all the plastic-fantastics I use, the Holga Micro is the worst — the tiny, fold-out square is about as useful as closing your eyes, spinning around and randomly shooting on the count of 10.

And that's why I love it!

See how the film emulsion abruptly fades at the lower edge of the eye. The flat and detatched look is just what Picasso would have painted in his cubist phase.
