Weekly Photo Challenge: Waiting


The New York City subway experience involves the art of not communicating with strangers in the terminal or on a car. It’s all about waiting for an arrival, for a stop, for a person to move; for a text, for the chance to be someone place else other than on the subway. DSC_0633 - Copy

Weekly Photo Challenge: Structure

angry blue jay - Copy (2)

I find bird claws, up close, to be menacing. But, clearly they are designed to enable a bird like this scrub jay to perch on my chair, if not on a telephone line, or on the stop sign down the street. As shown, it doesn’t like its photo taken. And, Hitchcock’s The Birds will always be present. via Photo Challenge: Structure
