The university has some wonderful little places hidden hear and there. One of my favorites is the goldfish pond behind Samford Hall. The pond has nice lilies and other aquatic plants but mostly it is the bright orange goldfish that make it special.
The light shifted fast over the corner of the pond and I had to keep reassessing what could move with the light and what couldn’t. At first I didn’t even think about putting fish in I was just going for the reflections but as soon as I saw them swim into the picture I know I had to try and paint them.
