midweek traffic

stop
go
can you stop yet
maybe for a moment
then prepare to go
for just a few more

on this road more black and whites

I love how birds make nests inside the local traffic lights. I always watch them come and go while I wait my turn. It's a happy little moment for me.

I love the colourless colours in this shot - just love the black and white with the glowing light - great shot.

I always imagine the birds having a little fun with us humans and think they control the traffic lights. They decide who stops and who goes. So the motto is always be nice to birds and next time you may be blesses green light your whole trip. (just a crazy thought)

always...could be my motto as of late :)

This is great!

A woodpecker woke me up yesterday and again this morning. His methodical peck peck peck had me firstly a little annoyed and then I realised that it was a wonder to be hearing that and I closed my eyes and soaked it in. The sound of traffic is what I used to wake up to. I prefer his natural repetitions.

The birds just 'make' the pictures!

I would never have thought to do this in black and white but it is so much more effective.
take care

I like this ELK! Wonderful analogy for the human condition and commuting.

I always love your pairing of words and photography - it's always so uplifting and challenging.

Caroline said...

Love this! Great way to capture the human condition through nature!

I love the bird's eye viewers of the the traffic!

Prospero said...

As a hopeless ornithologist, I can say that birds pretty much ignore traffic lights.

I don't know what it is about birds and traffic lights but they do love them so don't they? In the second one I love the bird on the left - a little bit of abstract happening there.

Lara said...

Jewels said...

Oh! I LOVE these :) Wouldn't you love to know how they communicate? I love to watch them flying all around like they are playing together!

Absolutely delightful! I often notice the birds perched on various rooftops, telephone wires, and lamppost. I really like how you've captured these fellas. Great series.

so evenly spaced. i have often wondered about that. i think that birds must know the exact amount of room that they will need when they land and take that space only. wouldnt it be great if people did the same. ;-)

miz katie said...

oh how wonderful to be up there instead of stuck in traffic. i wish i was a bird.
