Bird Mail - The bird I used is originally from an edited theme picture I took over break. The original picture of the mailbox was very dull, so I wanted to add something unique. The bird is very vibrant, and stands out in the picture, which I like a lot. I was a little worried that I wasn’t going to be able to find a good place to put the bird to make it look like it was on the mailbox, but I definitely liked the way it turned out.
Walking with Birds - My Dad and dog were on a walk when I took this picture. I saw the picture of the birds in the water and got the idea to blend the water into the sidewalk to make it look almost like “ghost birds”. The viewer would see the birds, and my dog, and maybe expect that in the future, my dog would’ve noticed them and started barking. I really liked the way this picture turned out and I’m really glad that I was able to work with the opacity to make the color of the water blend with the color of the sidewalk.
