Portraying animals

Call me weird but I'm not that into animals. I like them when they are in the nature, in their original and natural environment, not pets. I just don't like people humanizing animals. Ok, now I've said it. It's done. I usually don't tell this to people because after my confession the reactions vary. Some get mad at me, some think I'm just cold-hearted. And it's just too awkward.

This was an introduction to my post which today is surprisingly about animals. Because after I saw these beautiful animal portraits by photographer Simen Johan it got me thinking. These are taken the way we usually portray human beings: the presidents and CEOs and all the other great characters. There's something quite human and surreal about these. And though I usually hate the humanizing aspect with animals, I think I like it with these images.

Found via but does it float
