amidst the fall

I don't like using stock images in my photos- I like to create 'in camera' as much as I can, and the same can be said for this picture. Each of the birds in this photo was actually there. By a stroke of luck, I came into the possession of a dove just before sundown, and dashed out with my cousins to take this.

 

I took this last month, on the 4th anniversary of my Mom's death. In a sense, it's representative of all the things I experienced four years ago smashed into an apocalyptic concept. Death, pain, numbness, and a seemingly ending world.

 

Model is the beautiful Amanda.
