Birds in black and white

The Daily Post word prompt: Silhouette

I really enjoy turning my photos of birds into silhouettes. It is a bit of a process as I actually draw around the outline of the bird. I don’t use flood colour, I fill in the bird with black and then do the rest of the photos black pieces, branches etc by hand. The white is done the same way. I have posted some of these previously.

As you can see I don’t use borders. When they are framed, the mask provides an edge.

Silence

The Daily Post word prompt: Silence

Silence

Lost in time.
Now silence
echos
Around the dray.
The clanking, clinking
of chains.
The creak
of wood.
The squeak
of leather.
The steady clip, clop
of hooves.
The chatter
of people.
of years gone by
Are heard no more.
Now silence
echos
Around the dray
Long forgotten.
