171: Animal Totems

As I was looking over my photos from today, I was struck by the unplanned animal theme. I see each of the animals pictured here as rich in meaning, emblematic and symbolic beyond their surface illustration of "elephant" and "fish." Each evokes a specific mood and association quite distinct from the other: a new baby, softness, innocence; a refreshing drink, cool smoothness, festive company.
