I had the pleasure of visiting my sister and nieces this evening. They have two parrots, Oliver and George. In these pictures, Oliver is perched in front of a window which he looks out of for countless hours. I have wondered often what he sees and what he thinks as other birds fly past the window. Is he happy to be in a loving home with protection from nature's elements or does he envy the freedom of the birds outside? Strange how relationships are similar. To be in a relationship is attractive in that it does provide security and familiarity and yet being 'free' denotes a sense of excitement and variety. I'd choose the relationship, as odd as that may seem for those who know my 'track-record'. I think Oliver would choose the security and loving home as well.
In these images I purposely tried to capture silhouettes, one more partial than the other. Hope you enjoy the birds-eye view too!
