"near.starlings"

I have been getting home from work at nine at night, or later, so I pulled this image from my archive - based on Sue's palm fronds, now teased and weaved. I think she told me starlings lived in the palm, hence the name.

Image saved from the lint trap and placed here, folded like a starched crisp relatively new dress shirt.

Like the bumper sticker states - no originality here - "I owe, I owe, so it's off to work I go."

My best on a bright Thursday morning.

PS I think it also has a bit of NZ sky. Hence, Lisa also contributed.

John, I clicked on the image to enlarge it, and was amazed at how much more was there. I have no idea how you do this, but I sure do like it!

I see the season's trapped in an ice storm.

Getting home late is no fun. Most days, my schedule home by nine. Tooooo tired, not enough sleep.

Have a wonderful Friday! The weekend is almost here.

I really like the neutrality of the grey.......
I see scratchy etchings in ice made by the shadow of a lone ice skater's dance..
have a great Friday John...

The teasing and weaving has given these a lovely feathery look. Warm and soft.
Don't work too hard, all work and no play will fry the brain. Please heed this warning John, fried brains smell bad I have heard.

it reminds me of an old painting of a ship battle with giant men of wars. They are half wrecked and still shooting away at each other with their canon balls in a very choppy sea.

Very much love it.
