Images & Words # Week 54 ~ Photography


"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything" Aaron Siskind quote

Hi to All the I&W participants and guests.

This week I have thrown open the door for the theme of photography and knowing as I do that you are as passionate about your photography as I am, I welcome you to submit your photo of choice with words or a quote about the chosen photo to fit this theme.

I have chosen a photo from my visit to, The Birds of Prey, Free Flight Presentation on Kangaroo Island in South Australia. This dear little owl which some us were fortunate to pat, including me, (he was so soft), or capture with our cameras as he flew from lap to lap at will, was surely a memorable moment seen by all but especially those who had their cameras at the ready for a special capture to enthrall their family and friends when the vacation comes to a close and home beckons.

I look forward to viewing what you choose for this weeks theme


Have Fun and Cheers from Milli.



The Rules:

Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.

Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words.

Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .

Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.

All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here.

New topics will be posted on Sundays.

Posts can be made through Saturday.

One post per person only please.

  5. I was amazed at the softness too and your description is perfect Lynne. So so soft and gentle too.

  6. He flew onto my lap too Mia and I had rather thin trousers on and never felt a thing. Such a sweet little fellow he was.
