NEW from The Birdhouse Series -

"Birdhouse IV"
digitally manipulated fractal flame & collage by Mick Mather
It just doesn't seem to stop. I had one quiet week, last week. Already jam-packed, this week is quickly spinning out of control and I don't know when I'm going to find time to catch up. There must be something in the water ... gotta run, again. Enjoy!

Is Birdhouse a protection or is it a bound ?
In any case, this is an excellent work,i love it.
Have a nice busy week.

A birdhouse is a protection. A house-like enclosure that a bird can move in and out of freely, build a nest inside and raise young protected from the weather. A birdcage would be a bound type of enclosure where access is restricted.

I'm glad you like this image. :)

There's a good balance in this pic. The black bird, obviously the groom and the white cloth, smooth and delicate -the bride.

Going to a white wedding, Mick?

Thanks for the comment on the compositional balance. The variation and repetition of forms and shapes is always on my mind when placing things and I like the way this white wedding turned out too! :D

I am delighted to find a bird with the bird house. It's a wee bit ominous but I love that it's there. The light reflecting on the top of his wings and head has given him a wonderful shape although I feel he's frozen in time..waiting, watching...for what? His mate? Prey? Maybe man has intruded apon his space?

Love the definition of protection/bound. More food for thought for me!

Hmmm, only Birdhouse III is bird-less. You may have to look for them, but the first two definitely had a bird with each birdhouse. Many thanks for the delightful comment on this black bird. I love questions like these, they can lead to wonderful stories. I wonder if Miss 10 might have one?

This is great. It looks horrible (I'm scared of birds), but that's the point!
