Bird Houses- Sunday Stills #2

A second entry this week: We went on a short motorbike trip the past two days. We camped overnight in a lovely bushcamp. On the way to the ablution block I came across this sight in a tree: the nest of one of the many woodpecker species around our area. Unfortunately the inhabitants was not home, and sitting on their porch. That is sorry, for they are really beautiful birds…

The Birds… Sunday Stills

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Birds

Posted on September 29, 2013 by 

Last days of September and since time flies lets do birds this week. One or a whole flock, big or small, live or a figurine or statue its up to you to show your birds,  that did’nt sound right.

Near my sister in law’s house (near Sligo, Ireland) there is this beautiful park. We South Africans are amazed to see how young mothers and their children can go walking through wooded areas, and expect to come out on the other side of it alive and unmolested…  In this park there is a flock of white swans, and they create a peaceful setting for the walk:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

by michelle w. on September 13, 2013
This week, share what you see on the inside. It could be something literally inside, like these birds in the rebar or the inside of your home or favorite hideaway. If you’d like, go in a personal direction — share a photo of your best friend laughing, showing how she feels on the inside, or an arresting shot of your son’s blue eyes (windows to the soul, dontcha know). This is also a great opportunity to put what you learned in Jeff Sinon’s guest post on composition into practice.

I missed last week’s challenge by a few minutes, being away in the Bush for a week… Would love it if someone went to look at it at https://vosperdruiter.wordpress.com/2013/09/13/an-unusual-point-of-view-weekly-photo-challenge/
Ok- this week- do one in time… thinking, thinking… I do have a beautiful bird in a huge cage photo…
Image
Nope, not that one… Maybe…
Image
Not that one either, I remember a cage…
Image
There is the cage, but there were definitely birds in it, wrong species. And no, we do not punish our children like that, see they are smiling…
There was a phase in my life that I were breeding birds, like the beautiful Fisher Lovebirds… that was before Asian Flu stopped it all…
They were inside, and then they went outside, then I never saw them again… Image
But the photo I was thinking of is this one from my favourite coffee shop in our town. Right hemisphere (southern) wrong continent- the Beautiful Toucans that are usually found in South America, not in Africa…
Image
So that is my story of the inside… now you…
