Weekly Photo Challenge: Face

I will never forget how surprised and pleased I was when I first saw the photograph I took of this crow.  I loved that the crow and the tree looked black against the background of the white clouds and blue sky.  And I loved that I could see the photo as a picture of a crow or as a picture of a person, with a crow perched on one hand, reaching for the sky.

      1. The atmosphere of it suggests that to me, with the lone bird sitting at the end of a broken branch beneath a sombre sky, its leg tentatively reaching forward but having nothing to stand upon, the only option being to fly off into that same sombre expanse. Something like that.

      2. That explains it. I was answering your comment from the notification icon and I didn’t notice it was from the face photo. I was thinking it was a comment on the new Wordless Wednesday post. I can certainly see mournful in the crow picture!

  1. I remember this shot, Karuna, and it IS spectacular. This time I see it as the crow looking out to the heavens, silent, in honour of my mom on mother`s day… or perhaps in honour of all moms passed.
