Strong Soul



"Strong Soul"
This is a photograph from my "Best Of" collection.  There have been moments in my photography adventure where an image stops me in my tracks and literally helps define who I am as a photographer.  This image became that image for me.

At about twenty yards away from me, this American black bear stopped, brought her paw up to her mouth and looked right at me. In that moment I saw her eye to eye.  There are often powerful emotions that are evoked when looking into the eye of an animal or another person.  Some, in the past have called the eyes the windows to the soul.  Perhaps they are the windows to the soul, I do not know, but I do know they are full of emotion.

I entitled this "Strong Soul" because no matter if I see sadness, strength or confidence in the look, it tells me she has a strong personality.  By the way, I have never seen anger when looking into her eyes, but I do see some sadness in one of her eyes. In the other eye, I often see confidence.  One thing is certain, this bear changed me forever.
