Tell me a story - Thematic Photography

Congratulations to Carmi for reaching a 200 thematic photographic milestone. For this week he has chosen an abstract theme.

As I am preparing to travel back to the UK later today I only have one picture for you today. This was taken through a double glazed window. The tree is 400 yards away; the birds are rooks.

There are several collective names for rooks. This photo may hit them all.

  • Building - who put that scaffolding there"
  • Parliament - a lot of hot air
  • Clamour - you can hear them this far away.
  • Story tellling - about the bird that got the worm.

Ah, I like those rooks - I always liked the name "Parliament" - those personally I think rooks are a lot more sensible than some in our own dear House of Commons!!!

I thought parliament was for owls. Have a good trip home.

They do look like they could be standing around planning some new laws.

Don't look now, but somebody's taking our picture.

You are right, Bob, those birds aree up to something. I think here they are waiting for the coffee to brew before they start.

Have a nice trip.

Alexia said...

Nice shot. "Clamour" is my favourite of the terms.
Hope you have a good trip home.

I bet your sad in some ways to leave such a beautiful time not just Michigan, but catching up with your daughter! Safe journey home Bob...and perhaps these lovely birds will sing you a song!
