A Favourite

Between film and digital I have photographed hundreds of species of birds but there’s something about the European Robin. Confiding and sometimes so tame you have to be careful not to step on them, some are real characters.

Beloved is the new weekly photo challenge. The photo below is a film shot from the 1980s that I  came across in my slide files recently.

Week 4: White against blue

I picked this shot for week 4 because we haven’t seen much sun or blue sky since I started this 52 week photo project. It was nice seeing the sun shining on a Paper Birch standing out against a blue sky.
