Pocahontas

Spread the love

I found it very interesting that Pocahontas was actually a Native American woman notable for her association with the colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. In a well-known historical anecdote, she is said to have saved the life of a captive of the Native Americans, the Englishman John Smith, in 1607 by placing her head upon his own when her father raised his war club to execute him.

I always associated a sexy, indian lady with the name.  As it turns out she was not “Just another pretty face”.

I really like this photo. The rocks, some smooth and some rigid, draw me in. Secondly I am captured by the beautiful water flowing around them. Can you hear the waves? I can. Lastly I love the sailboat in the distance, with the sailors safely away from the dangers of the rocks enjoying the sea and the breeze.  I wonder are the sipping Corona?

At first glance this is a very comical photo but there is a lot going on here actually that captures the attention. The zoom on the pistol, sorry the banana…. the distorted head, the suit blending into the plain grey background. Why is he holding a banana and wearing a suit anyway?  Nice.
