Sunday already, weekend almost over, but… it’s not the end of the world. Far from it, although it may feel like it – sometimes. Workdays may not always be the fun that they should be or one hopes them to be, but for the most part I don’t mind them really. I may whine about them sometimes and dread every Monday, but that’s just because I want to do photography related things so badly. And then, come TGIF, the weekend, it just zooms past and is gone. Until the next one. Thank God, there is always a next one. And that’s how it is with Kathy’s You’ll-shoot-your-eyes-out Song-ography. Every Sunday a song inspired photograph (or more than one). This Sunday’s song is: ‘One is the loneliest number’ sung by Three Dog Night!
Thinking about my photos the first ones that came to mind were: Trees. During one of the snow storms this season I took a few pictures around town and there are a few very lonely (and barren) trees. They really do make for quite a nice picture. However, you just have to take my word on that for the time being. Because I am soooo over winter, that I refuse to show you another winter picture for – at least – another week!
So, instead I went digging and found these ones from one of our vacations at The Outer Banks. David was trying out a long board, which a friend lent him. He hadn’t done this kind of surfing since his teens, out there alone, quite happily paddling along, looking out for the next surfable wave…
… when all of a sudden this pelican showed up. So, I took a few shots of the big bird flying it’s rounds…
… when suddenly in my view and photo appeared a second one.
Following them along their path, David got back into my photos. And guess, what? He wasn’t so alone anymore. And neither was the pelican. Now it was a whole flock of pelicans. Practicing a fly-by only a few inches above the waves.
In the photo above it almost looks as if the front pelican is being caught by the wave. Alas, he was not, as you can see below.
Even so. it is quite a sight when they actually do dive right into a wave to catch fish. They make a big splash!
And there you go. One may be the loneliest number, and you may feel lonely, but really – you are never alone on this world. That’s it for me for this Sunday and for this round of Song-ography. Hope to see you again soon.
