a squirrel


Permit me to try to convince you this is an artistic photo of a squirrel, not merely a badly shot, blurry one. It's clear to me, in retrospect, that I was subconsciously aiming for precisely the effects you see here. The photo conveys a strong feeling of rapid, jittery motion, putting the viewer in touch with the hyperkinetic essence of squirrel-ness. The viewer perceives the inner squirrel in this image (and not in the icky-roadkill-photo sense, fortunately). So in that regard we have to consider this image a resounding triumph.

The bidding starts at $500.
