And Have You Changed Your Life?
And have you too finally figured out what beauty is for?
And have you changed your life?
The Swan (excerpt)
Swan: Poems and Prose Poems
This week’s photo challenge is cover art. We were challenged to offer a photo to be used as the cover for a book. The two photos in this post could be used as the front and back covers for Mary Oliver’s exquisite Swan poetry. Her line “and have you changed your life” is shown in the course change of the two swans between the first and second photos. Perhaps they are taking a road less traveled in the second frame? The proposed book cover intentionally has no title or text on either front or back, they would display only on the book’s spine. Thanks to Pete R and WordPress for this topic.
Thanks also to Leanne Cole and Laura Mackey for hosting the Monochrome Madness challenge. These photos are actually in color, they have not been manipulated to simulate black & white. I love it when nature presents us her monochrome palette – there is something evocative about layered grey skies.
A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.
Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.
