Good Morning Ted and Jody:
I have spent the better part of my photographic forays since I said I would look for overhead wire subjects to photograph. I have rejected them all. However, fragglerocking suggested I try for birds on wires. I knew where some occasionally congregated so I shot this image yesterday: . Then I zoomed in and after the shot messed with the sky and pole to produce this: So, I owe fragglerocking a big thank you for her suggestion. However, despite much pleading and promises of bird seed, I could not get most of the birds to turn around and face the camera. Pigeons can be so stubborn.
I have seen photographs of the late 19th Century and early 20th Century which were overwhelmed with overhead wires and because they were a glimpse at an earlier time, the wires, while still ugly, did not detract from the image or its messages. Modern overhead wires, I guess need to be antiques before they become “photographable.” None-the-less I will keep up my quest for wire photos—I need the challenge.
Yesterday I awoke to driving rain. I switched on the television and the weather lady said “It is going to be dry most of the day except for local showers.” I guess I live in “the local” where showers were to occur yesterday, for it rained here most of the day. However, I am happy others got a break in the wet spell we are having (winter).
I have put off chores for as long as I can. I have to get to them today for I pick up Nancy at PDX tonight.
Warmest regards, Ed
