A Single Photograph

“Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her,
still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings.”
- Victor Hugo -

  1. I wonder if that bird knows how beautiful she is?

    1. That's an interesting thought. Are birds aware of how they look?

  2. O my, that is an absolutely beautiful capture. That is a blue jay, is it not? Goodness, such perfect form and colour. This, incidentally, is somehow making me think of the Toronto Blue Jays, whom I used to cheer with such demented zeal when I was in high school...

    1. I have blue jays dropping by regularly in my back yard. I toss them peanuts for a chance at a photograph. They are happy to oblige!

  4. I really like this quote and photo Martha. Sometimes the ground beneath us gets a little shaky and we have to adjust and become familiar with that feeling.

  5. The perfect quotation to go with that photo!

    I'm glad to see that Grumpy Cat is bilingual. And hey, didja hear? Grumpy Cat will be the new spokescat for Friskies cat food. She and her attendant were flown to Austin, Texas to shoot commercials at the big SXSW music festival. I can't wait to see the results!

    1. No, I didn't know that! That's great. Can't wait to see that. It should be funny. Well, I hope they make it funny. I can't imagine why they wouldn't. Grumpy cat is a star!

  7. Bluejays really are magnificent, but often overlooked. Great shot, Martha.

    1. Yes, they are often overlooked. But I adore them, and so does my camera!
