Bird (Day 20)

Welcome to 30 days of Photographs II. A photo challenge bearing a striking resemblance to an Alfred Hitchcock movie. I leave it to you to guess which one. Only 10 more days left to go. Click to see the list of themes that could have been created by Hitchcock himself.

And here is the cast of characters participating in this challenge: Ziva, MikeWJ, Mo, Meleah, nonamedufus, Unfinished Person, Mariann, Malisa, Nora, LaughingMom, Tanya, Elizabeth A, Kristen , Cheryl, Katherine, and 00Dozo.

I’m pretty sure they all die at the end.


Mike – Little back-story…Have you seen that show Portlandia? Well there’s this in-show joke that in Portland “you can put a bird on something and call it art“, which is further illustrated in the sketch Put A Bird On It.

Anyhow, I mentioned the show to a colleague and then found this Post-It Note stuck on my headphones the next day. Just in time for today’s theme. Bird:

Nicky – I hate birds. I believe, however, that the feeling is mutual.

I used to live in an apartment where birds had built nests in the walls and would regularly find their way into my home. Trust me when I tell you, bird crap is NOT an interior design statement.

Also, on more than one occasion, kamikaze birds have crashed into my car while I was driving. One even flew inside my car while I was stopped at a red light.

As if it’s not bad enough that they’ve invaded my home and attempted to murder me in my car, the little buggers pecked away at the cantaloupe seeds I planted in our garden last year and not a single one grew.

So, yeah, I hate birds and I was not looking forward to this theme. Then my son, Jake, told me he had a bird in our living room. One that would consent to having it’s photo taken and would then leave without crapping all over the place or trying to kill me. I grabbed my camera and ran into the living room.

Sure enough, there he was.
