Things to see

I recently bought a new camera, which tempts me to take more time to see more of the things around me, then try to capture them. Feel free to click on the images for better views.  Here’s a sampling–first, a tale of two birds:  This turkey at the local Farmer’s market is deemed to be food, whereas the peacock at the zoo is deemed to be art.

      Rejean: Thanks for your comment – My daughter will be delighted when she reads your comment. Feel free (but don't feel obligated) to share an image of your painting once it is finished.

    Edgar: Those are fantastic images. Thanks for sharing. The phrase "self-organizing" comes to my mind as I view many of them. It's amazing how randomness can take such interesting shapes.
