Photo 101: Edge & Alignment

It was a cloudy and overcast day.  A large blue heron was perched on the “edge” of the roof line.  I was two stories below, so he or she showed no fear, and I was able to take all the pictures that I wanted while he preened.  Here are two  that I believe demonstrate today’s theme. “edge”.

I retired from a rule-driven profession and moved to the beach in Georgia with my husband. Now I spend my time doing fun and creative things and enjoying the warm weather and my beautiful surroundings.

  1. Great photos! You can really see the details. And I agree, you wouldn’t want a crooked bird. Good choice to align with the bird’s leg.

  2. Great photos! It’s amazing how birds can twist their heads around behind them like that.
