Galloping Elephants, Freedom and Mastery

This image of a woman riding a galloping elephant across a grass covered plain, her hair and satin dress flowing in the wind, is a great concept picture illustrating freedom, mastery and the improbable. The elephant is caught in mid stride, his huge legs outstretched over the ground, has the woman hangs onto his ears with an expression of joy and pleasure. Hey, who wouldn't be having fun galloping freely across the landscape on the back of an elephant? This humorous elephant picture offers a great contrast between the nimble body of the young woman and the huge mass of the ponderous pachyderm.


One Of A Kind Picture Of A Woman Riding An Elephant

This is truly a one of a kind picture of a woman riding an elephant. It would never happen this way in real life. For one thing, elephants don't really gallop. I used Photoshop to create this comical version of an elephant stampeding across the field. To me, the really important thing is if people enjoy the image. Part of the allure is the improbability, no, make that the impossibility of such a scene actually existing...but here it is, through the miracle of digital imaging, a photographic reality. This can be a picture of speed, and also a photo of a journey.


Running Elephants, Riding Elephants, And Metaphors For Business And Life

Running elephants, and riding elephants, are both rich metaphors for both business and life. This galloping elephant image can be used to advertise and editorialize on the possibilities that exist everywhere. This is a picture of imagination and creativity. They say that if you can imagine it, you can do it. This woman on the back of the elephant is a metaphor for freedom, adventure, and even skill and control. You get the feeling that if she can ride a galloping elephant she can do anything, and do it with grace and beauty. Her white dress communicates purity; that she is barefoot shows that she is in tune with nature. His expression is pure joy which shows that she is confident and in command. This can be a photograph of feminine power as well as a photograph of achievement and success. That she is riding the elephant bare back shows that she has balance as well as skill and that all important connection with nature. This is a photo showing a woman who has risen to the challenge and conquered adversity. This is certainly an unusual way to get away from it all!
