Photo of the day – snail’s pace

Today’s Photo of the Day, shot near Giverny, France by Flickr user Bryson Gilbert, forces a reorientation of space and perspective. This snail is traveling with intent, possibly to get away from a human with what look like very large feet, and it is extremely tiny.

Among other observations forced by this image: snails are not pretty. The photographer’s laser-like focus on the snail reminds us of this.
