Final Scene

Final Scene

The Day before Thanksgiving.

Faint whispers

Nimbus hovers over

Salty tears

Billie gently takes your hand

Sine wave flattens

Dissipating fog

Forgotten memories shine bright 

Roots strong as Damascus steel

You are home with Father now

Back when I knew it all

Greenwich Lane

The first concert I ever went to was with my Mum. We went to see our favourite band Savage Garden at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. It was amazing and probably my favourite concert I’ve ever been to. The lead singer of the band is Darren Hayes and he penned a beautiful letter to his 15 year old self. I’m also inspired when I read the letter and it reminds me to not take things for granted, and to not dwell on the little things.

If I could tell my childhood self 5 things about the future they would be:

  1. The HSC exam at the end of school doesn’t and won’t define you. You’ll become a successful teacher and love your job. The HSC mark didn’t get you there, you won a scholarship where YOU got the chance to shine, not your essays

What’s Wrong with this Picture

But, do they need to be present during a parade, especially when one should be waving there hands instead of holding the addicting, smart, shinning entity?

The American Robin (Turdus migratorius)

This morning I thought I would share an image in motion.

It has been a busy few weeks so far at the home front. A 50th anniversary, a nephew-in-law moving party where I felt like a third wheel since I have limited use of my left arm and hand, yet did some minor cleaning. A virus removal on Deb’s Mothers computer, breakfast  tomorrow morning with Deb’s Aunt.

Come this August, will be going to see my grand Aunt Cris on my Dad’s side whom I have not seen since the mid 80’s. I will be in Denver, Colorado during the fourth week of August. I also hope to capture some great images while there.

Sparrow Coasting

Sparrow,Sparrows, Type of birdsNow, these birds are small and fast, very difficult to capture, but with patients and a whole lot of luck – I caught it zipping by me in an empty field. A field I can no longer shoot in due to the paranoia of the planed Parent Hood that is across the empty field,  😦  It is what it is!

A Pigeon I do believe, but don’t really have a clue!

vulture, vultures, soringWhile I was trying to capture four military jets flying by, this one large bird was flying in the opposite direction, so I focused on this bird. I still don’t really know what it is. After watching “Defying Gravity” that aired on the Nova channel a couple of days ago, I believe it maybe a Vulture of some type.

I hope everyone enjoyed viewing the images,

Leave me feedback with your honest opinions about the images.
