Always in search of a different perspective – at least visually – I like to consider birds’ feet, as well as their faces.
Sometimes it works.
WOW. Wonderful photograph!
So visceral. I’ve give this a prize. 😀
Barbara – Thank you. I’m tempted to do a series on feet.
It will be hard to top this one.
Barbara – Ah. A challenge . . .
This also bears on Seth Godin’s message of re-seeing what’s already there. This morning at church, we sang “This Little Light of Mine,” and waved a finger in the air. And I was struck by what those fingers said about the pain of arthritis, knobbled and bent. Or of workplace accidents, with the end of a finger missing. Or perhaps of vanity, with fingernails that would rival a bobcat’s. Learning to see — really to see — beyond the fancy plumage to the stuff that isn’t so obvious, so demanding, can be rewarding.
Jim T – I wonder (ha) whether anyone else thought about the fingers in that way. Likely not, so then I wonder what other musings were generate din that sanctuary this morning. The world really is full of wonders, isn’t it?
A marvel. Yes. Go for feet. They top funny faces in machinery.
Laurna – What?!! Do they even top funny faces in kitchen utensils? But that’s the great thing about this hobby – it need not be either/or. Consider feet added . . .

I invite you to help me make a difference by buying my latest book. All my royalties are going to Food Banks Canada to help with the problem of food insecurity, made even worse by this pandemic.

"If you don’t think Cdns can tell right from wrong & honourable from disgusting, & speak up effectively, why the heck let those slugs vote? And if you do, why graciously permit them to cast a ballot on terms the politicians define, but not to weigh in on the issues beforehand?"
Canada, land of freedom to shut up and let politicians talk https://thejohnrobson.com/blog/2021/6/11/canada-land-of-freedom-to-shut-up-and-let-politicians-talk
Yeah, the way the opposition has been stonewalling committees, barring witnesses from appearing, refusing to release documents, filibustering… oh, wait. https://twitter.com/SusanDelacourt/status/1402976028147040256
The government's House Leader, @pablorodriguez, is saying at. news conference right now that Conservatives are making Parliament dysfunctional -- which Liberals for a while have been saying they would regard as an election trigger. Uh oh. #cdnpoli
