On the first of every month M’Kay and Lucinda host that delightful post- A PERFECT POST. My prize for this month goes to Roxanne at Melange for this wonderful piece: A Robin’sTale. This post is so typical of the beautiful and fascinating photojournalism that goes on every day over there. This month, when I’ve been in the midst of moving madness (M’Kay. how DID you manage to move AND blog?) I have still been streaking through the neighborhood, usually without comment and I particularly loved the stories of Roxanne’s birds during July. She follows them through the perils of parenting as they build homes, have them blown apart, move into FEMA-like housing made of cereal bowls,lay eggs, hatch their babies, launch their young (into traffic) and in general, experience the prat falls and triumphs of all parents, feathered or not.
Roxanne’s photography is fascinating to me as she changes lens, magnifies the minutiae of life and catches the most amazing flashes of motion and color. Going to her place calms me down, makes me smile and count my blessings. Thank you, Roxanne!
