Black Bird

I know this image looks overly processed but I kind of like it. I like the way the bird looks dark, I like the fact that you can’t really tell what you are looking at, I like the fact that the overall mood is a bit “creepy.” It kind of goes with the concept of black birds. Black birds, I don’t think, are supposed to be very pretty. They aren’t the upbeat chipper things that cardinals are anyway. They are sort of these deep dark beasts that are omens for bad things to come. At least, that’s how they have always been shown and who am I to buck that trend?

I don’t know, I kind of like this darkness. I don’t think I want it to stick around for years unending but, for an image or two, yeah, I rather like it.

Besides if we did not have the dark, we would not appreciate the light when it shines down upon us again, right?

Until next time…

    Thanks, Mythopolis. I'm sorry it's not a chicken but these black birds have been around the garden a lot lately.
