The Cockatoo by moonfullofstars The Cockatoo by moonfullofstars
The cockatoo who visits our window ledge daily for food and the nearby woods in fog. This would have looked better if I'd had a higher quality scan of the woods, but alas (- it was also taken from a moving car!). Maybe I'll try to get one later, but I hope you can still appreciate what I was going for. I don't know about you, but to me there's something a little sinister-looking about that cockatoo in this photo which I think fits well with the eerieness of the fog-enshrouded, dead trees in the background. There's also a sense of stillness and quietude in both the bird and the trees, I think, though this is probably more salient to me, knowing how devoid of life the forest was for some time after the fire. Anyway, enough from me. Your comments please!

[edit 10 Mar 05: as per suggestions, I have fixed up the funny coloured bit previously at the bottom, and added soft-focus to the woods]

I think the 'sinister' look you are reffering to is the impending mischief

He want's to get into everything in your house, I bet.

Lovely shot~

Don't worry, they weren't very good. That's why I scrapped 'em :movingon:
