Wing-Feather Fables: Frontiers

Each and every time, I am amazed at the places where Lisa’s creative imagination take us. Come along, won’t you and discover the meaning of “WILD 1909”. And ask yourself – what do we miss by not believing in the unbelievable.?

  1. “Wild 1909” is most intriguing. Lovely gold tones. The sky and bottom rectangle nicely frame this image.

  2. Brenda, you seem to have a never-ending supply of fascinating old buildings to photograph. I love your processing of this one. There’s something ominous about that sky, but its tones perfectly complement that golden brick.

  3. Love the golden tones and mood that moves from image to story–fantastic!
