Images and Words Week 120: Animals
Greetings from Amy and welcome to week 120 of Images and Words. I'm sorry for my slightly late start this week, but this image took a LONG time to make. My theme is Animals, which has been done before but it's always a fun theme with lots of possibilities. Here is my entry:
This is part of my series of Images and Words that depict common themes among religions and science with the goal of spreading peace and understanding. The impetus for this photo was the study about chickens and empathy (quote on the bottom), there wasn't enough room on the photo to explain the study but they specifically studied hens' reactions to seeing their chicks in distress (mild distress, they didn't want to torture cute little chickies!). Around the same time as the study came out I read the quote from the Prophet Mohammad, after that I knew it would be easy to find quotes from other religions. There's a wonderful Jesus quote about birds, but it's specifically about sparrows and I wanted to use this photo of Francine and the chicks. BTW, the chicks are almost four months old now so they are big, and they are beautiful, and they are almost ready to start laying eggs! I hope you will enjoy my theme.
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.*
