Excellent quote to match your example of changing an image. Just your photo gives me much to think about! thank you.

betchai said...

thanks for the quote you chose, Diane, it really is something to ponder. And the picture of the bird in sepia tone is really beautiful, inspires us to stop for a while and listen to our reflections.

Really like this. I clicked to enlarge and caught the sparkle in the bird's eye. Perfect shot for sepia.

Gotta wonder how birds can stand on prickly plants. ;-) Is this a finch?

What a great capture of this cute little guy. I wonder how the prickly cactus doesn't bother him or her.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Ah, that's a wonderful shot and no truer words by my favorite guru.

The bird may be diminutive in the world, but in sepia on top of this Arizona cacti, he is massive and bigger than we can imagine. This is a nice capture from the much warmer desert than up here. Nice capture - Happy New Year!

Mama Zen said...

Is that Mockingbird mocking the new year or the old? Happy new year to you!

Stephanie said...

Hmm... yeah you are right :-D Sepia changes the look with 'milder' feel of the bird. Like 'more distance' or the bird in my dream which I hardly remember the colours ;-)

Have a great countdown to the new year Dianne!
