      1. Of the two, I prefer "Big feet". There is more action and meaning in it. You get a sense of purpose. Not only in what the Gosling is doing, but also in the actual timing of the photo itself. Posted 7 years ago
        1. Very true. I love both though. They are perfect showcases of how very common animals that we all know can still lead to beautiful and unexpected scenes. Posted 7 years ago
