Day 58: “I wonder if it really is a turkey.”
This is shot no. 6 in the Literary Series. Today’s shot is a not so literal twist on Hans Christian Andersen’s story “The Ugly Duckling.” We all know the ugly duckling in that story was really a swan, but I thought I’d have a little fun by playing with the words and concept.
