Birds On a Wire

The original of this picture is oddly interesting on its own, in my opinion; it’s a group of black metal ‘birds’ perched on a wire suspended above a garden, with tall trees in the background of a bright blue-sky day. However, in Photoshop-land, where I brought this image, it is transformed into an impressionist-style melange of colors and shapes merely suggestive of birds and trees. Blackbirds on wire poster

    1. I think it’s very cool that you took the video of the crazy barking birds!! How often do we stop ourselves from doing something, losing the incredible weirdness or uniqueness of the moment we’re in? I think people underestimate how unique each weird experience is, and I think we really underestimate how much other people are fascinated by life in general, all facets of it, not just the easily-explainable or the inherently beautiful. Roses are beautiful, but it gets boring taking pictures of perfect roses all day. One starts to look for the thorns, if only to show that there’s more to the world than what’s pretty or easy. 🙂 Thanks for reading!

      1. “unique moments”…. thank you so much for that phrase – it fits about 90% of my posts, I believe. Kind of like when I tasted camel’s milk for the first time, friends insisted on a video. I honestly thought it was gonna be great stuff, but holy cow – I was wrong. 🙂

      2. This is your one life. Only you can document it. You know what’s cool, I think, are the journals and books written by women travelers of yore (“yore” being centuries prior to this one) telling their interesting and unique experiences. It’s just that we have different methods for capturing these experiences now. I can only imagine that camel milk would taste like the inside of a camel, and you know, that’s just not a place I want to be. 😉 But this is why it’s important to write the Great Camel Milk Story, so everyone can know what camel milk tastes like. People still write travelogues, after all.
