19 Jan Celebrate Ordinary
We need to celebrate ordinary.
For example, here is a Mourning Dove. It’s a common (ordinary) bird that can be found in most of the United States and Mexico.
Pause a moment to notice the subtle shades of color. The pale blue eye ring. The feather patterns.
And yes, there are more exotic, more colorful, more rare birds.
For most of us, those birds are somewhere else.
So here is a friendly reminder to celebrate ordinary beauty. Because it’s easily accessible. It’s always there. And it’s often free.
If you take photos, there’s also a challenge here.
It is: How can you take photos that show scenes everyone sees in ways they have never seen before.
I show how to do this in my Photo Class (See the News below).
Here are two excellent books about birds. I recommend both of them.
Inspiring Respect for Nature, one bird at a time.
