Perhaps a bird or two

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Birds of All Kinds

A bit of a song to have a look at a few birds. The original song I found had lots of birds in the song, and this is the basis for the photos. The song turned about to be rather crude so I went for a lovely song instead.

Early morning is for the birds

Early morning is for the birds
There is a place
to sit
enjoy
early morning
a cuppa
bird chatter
First rays
slowly lighten
appear
tree tops
a cuppa;
bird chatter…….

There is a place
to sit
enjoy
early morning
a tree
bird chatter
First rays
slowly lighten
birds appear
slowly
a tree;
birds chatter…..

There is a place
to sit
enjoy
early morning
a tree
bird chatter
First rays
slowly lighten
more birds
appear
a tree;
birds chatter…..

There is a place
to sit
high
early morning
a tree
bird chatter
First rays
slowly lighten
feeling warmth
feathers
a tree;
birds chatter…..

There is a place
to sit
among branches
early morning
a tree
bird chatter
First rays
slowly lighten
facing sun
appears
a tree;
birds chatter…..

There is a place
to sit
lower
early morning
a tree
bird chatter
First rays
lighten faster
in the bark
feeding
a tree;
birds chatter…..

There is a place
to sit
enjoy
early morning
a tree
bird chatter
First rays
cast shadows
looking about
gone
bird chatter;
a tree.

There is a place
to sit
enjoy
early morning
a cuppa
bird chatter
First rays
slowly lighten
appear
tree tops
a camera;
birds chatter…….

Time to focus

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #121: Focus on the Subject

Patti has given some tips so maybe I should see how I go using these ideas for inspiration

Using Leading Lines & Repeating Patterns – “The lines and patterns help draw us into the scene and guide our eyes towards the subject.”

Using Selective Focus – This technique helps the viewer focus on the subject

Using Colour – “In this case, the colors help draw our eyes to the main subject of the image.”

Using Contrast & Focusing on the Eyes – “Contrasts in color, patterns, textures, old and new, fast and slow (for example) can help guide our viewers to focus on the subject.”

Freezing the Action – “Our eyes are drawn to action and speed.”

Framing the Shot with Arches, Doorways, etc. – “A final technique to draw attention to our subject is to use doorways, arches, tunnels, and windows to create a frame around it”

Blackfeather revisited

The Bird Weekly Photo Challenge: Birds with Black Feathers

First off, let me explain the title. My High School dance, which was the last one we held at the High School Hall when I was in 5th Year, was one of the best ever. Only 6th and 5th Formers were allowed to attend and the band who played were one of the foremost Aussie groups at the time whose name was Blackfeather. They were such a great group that I was them many times and they had a few line-up changes and a bit of controversy. There is a few versions of this song, one has a sort of a classical piano introduction I think Lisa would enjoy but the quality isn’t all that good.

Here is one version that brings back memories of losing a girlfriend but another girl came into my life and awakened the future man in me.

OK enough of that stuff, here are some bird with black feathers.

It’s kinda over until next year

Day thirty-one of Becky’s Square Photo Challenge for October: Kindasquare

Yes another month of square fun is over. I looked for a bit of kind music and then just a song to match a kinda image took over. I do have a few songs left over but no photos this time. Photographers block set in a couple of days ago. I am writing this not knowing what photos to post so it looks like into the draft folder it goes until tomorrow.

The full length of this song is over fifteen minutes so I found a shortened version.

Just around for a short while to soak up the squares for October and 2020 and then I’ll be gone until the Squares return in January next year.

See you later

Here’s a finisher for Debbie 🙂 I have a few “Kind” songs left over and mentioned this to Debbie yesterday so though I should include this one just for her for Six Word Saturday
