Death

Newer Older

A crow is associated with death in Japan as well as in many other countries. You can see a kanji letter on the wall which means "death" in Japanese. I happened to find it and took this photo.
People loathe the crows although they can be very intelligent & make great pets. Some interesting reports say that they put hard walnut on a road for passing cars to break the shells. TV news reported about a crow enjoying a slide in a park(not the park in this photo unfortunately). They mimic dog barks, human voices, doorbells etc. and entertain us sometimes.
People! Be more generous to this black & ominous bird(^_^)v.

    Everything that has a start, has an end?

    All that is born must also die.
    Death is but a natural part of life, just like birth.
    A very well conceived combination.
    Thank you for the explanation .... very informative.

    Great image! How would it look if you cropped out the green vegetation at the top? I think taking away a sense of place would make it more unnerving.

    Right. I'll do that next time I have a chance to capture something like this(^_^;).
