Scruffy (Explored)

Scruffy (Explored)
The challenge this week for the Sunday Challenge Group was selective lighting. I decided to photograph Scruffy, my toy Indian elephant. Not owning the proper equipment, I used a cookie box as a camera base because my tripod would not go low enough to the ground. I put a crappy flashlight with uneven lighting on the floor at a 45 degree angle to Scruffy to provide an interesting light source.
