Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

5 - Winter is for the Birds

Following closely behind these bird tracks were cat prints. Did the cat stalk the bird? Or did it catch the scent hours after the bird had left? Or maybe the cat had been there first. The snow records their presence but leaves us no timeline except to reveal that the birds are returning from their southern vacation and that means that spring can't be that far behind.

The Lotus 52s is my 2011 project to capture one photo a week. I have a new lens and that makes it the right time to get to know my camera better. This is my effort to improve my images, to improve my processing, and to learn more about the world around me.


  1. Love this photo! How did you get that grainy/smoky feel?

  2. What a great capture!! I wonder what the back story is on this :)

  3. I absolutely LOVE the bird prints. Oh my word. Such a great picture Manisha! You always wow us. Thank you ever so much for participating at Tuesdays around the World. We just LOVE having you there! Love it so much!

  5. Thanks Everyone! I love participating in communal global's Tuesday's around the world! Happy Birthday, CG!!

    Deonne - I use the boost action on photoshop elements. I got it for free from Pioneer Woman. She's offered two great sets of actions. Let me know if you want it and have trouble finding it.

  6. OmGosh I love that! Cat and bird footprints in the snow! How cute. I love birdie prints though! So tiny! I hope spring is near!

  7. Manisha - Is it called "lab color boost"? If you could point me in the right direction, I'd love it. Thank you!
