Wherein he sticks his landing
Life spreads itself across
the ceiling to make you think
you are penned in, but that
is just another gift. Life takes
what you thought you couldn’t live
without and gives you a heron instead.
The Next Best Thing: Poems
This week’s photo challenge is minimalist. In this one moment in time, the Great Blue Heron fledgling had but one simple task: to stick his landing on the rock. With intense focus, grasping feet, and supple wings, our fledgling nailed it. Gracefully. Thanks to Jen H and WordPress for this topic.
Thanks also to Leanne Cole and Laura Mackey for hosting the Monochrome Madness challenge. Visit Leanne and Laura’s challenge page to see other outstanding interpretations of monochromatic and B&W photography.
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.
