Visual Metaphor

I saved this photo from the day in Birmingham until last (coincidentally it was the last picture I made that day), because it fit in quite nicely with a conversation about visual metaphor I was having with another photographer.

It's All Bull!

It just so happens that I had taken the above photo a couple of days before our conversation. It could be saying two things. The first is the metaphor of the sturdy bull and the guy in the Hollister advert (although it seems they make their shirts without buttons and enough material to cover a torso). The second could be saying that the advert is pure ‘bull’…

    I’d go for the second option, but thats just me.
