prepared to take flight
n the soft gray air
yet remaining
still
quietly sharing life

I think that first high contrast black and white image might be my favorite from you! I love it! Well done!

preparing to take flight . . . at this time of year, i feel a bit jealous of them, a bit melancholy at the knowledge they will be gone soon. but.. something to look forward to in the spring.

Love the birds on a wire. I often see a whole bunch of them together like that on my way to work and either have no time or no camera to capture them.

Marcie said...

Love how you've taken the birds-on-the-wire..and transformed them into paper ones. Very creative!!!

suzyQ said...

quietly taking flight... this describes my heart, seeing your photos... how i love, the black and white, and the peace with which you post.

Relyn said...

Becky Shander said...

Your first photo is especially interesting and thought provoking. You've captured something quite extraordinary...one single bird on a wire, alongside a separate wire full of many, many birds. Is there a message within this photo...hmm, I wonder?

deb said...

I am so grateful to have this space of reflection and gentle truth to come to Elk.
thank you

I love these, I have a serious soft spot for birds and I love the way you've made the first image a silhouette... lovely!
