I was casually scrolling through Pinterest when I came across this image and it made me smile instantly. I think it is so powerful in so many different ways. The little girl’s small size emphasizes the elephant’s large size, and vice versa. The white/gray contrast of the girl’s dress and the elephant’s skin also give the two figures great distinction from one another. But I think that this photo shows just how similar the girl and elephant are as well. It shows that love and friendship can sometimes be unexpected, but that doesn’t mean they’re not also beautiful and real. The two subjects are as different as they can be, but together, they make one unique pair and photo.
