I love the image we took on a recent walk around Washington Park. The quiet of it is reflected in muted colors. It still has a reflection of the setting sun on the right. I like the water next to frozen ice... just like that our environment changes. The birds could choose between walking and swimming. I like the texture the ripples give.
I also like the stillness and peace, knowing any minute a bird could startle and all would fly off.
Change. Water changing to ice, changing light quality as the sun sets, changing habitat and likely location for these particular birds. Big change of habitat for the three of us.
Washington Park is in Denver's Cherry Creek area.
I love the next one...
One among many. One who chose to stand alone. Impossibly standing on water.
Do you ever think about birds? Do you wonder if they have thoughts? As they live their lives in search of food, shelter, and a flock to belong to... how is that so very different from what we do?
Are we more important than other creatures on earth? Maybe to each other, but not in the grand scheme.
We also walked one afternoon around the Baker neighborhood full of interesting homes.
As we walked along, I noticed interesting yards, architecture, and this fellow in the top window...
What's your story, pretty?
Did a woman care for this home, keeping it clean and cozy for a family? Was she proud of how pretty it was, did she host women's groups where they planned how to win the vote? Didn't she see a lot of changes over her life? !
Look closer in the window at the new family.
the family changed of course, from 1890, but I imagine back then a cat sat in a window and a little boy might run over to see why it was looking out. Changed but the same in a way.
More next week.
