“- I think it’s a pity that the beautiful old houses are being torn down.
– They don’t bring in enough rent.
– The empty spaces look like graves. Like house graves.”
— From the film Alice in the Cities
“Life is a series of suicides…”
— From the film Love Streams
“And break through dark;
It’s acrid in the streets;
A paper witch upon her sulphured broom
Flies from the gutter.”
— Dylan Thomas, Time Enough to Rot
“If only I could so live and so serve the world that after me there should never again be birds in cages.”
— Isak Dinesen (penname of Karen Blixen)
Happy October 😉

You make the stark nakedness of B&W work so well in these shots ~ matching the great series of quotes you have used. The transition of fall into winter. Wishing you a great time until the cold of winter is upon us 🙂
Thank you, Dalo, your words are deeply appreciated. Hope all is well with you,
A fantastic series of photos. I really like these shots.

The thing is, birds are free.
Even the ones in cages who cannot fly, are always thinking about flying free.
Humans, on the other hand, make the cages, that imprison everything, including, ourselves, and really don’t know why.
I couldn’t wait to climb trees when I was little, so I could be closer to the birds.
So, so true. Thanks for pausing to share your reflections with me. All the best- aj
