272/365 – I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

** Well, I am back to catching up. First, I lost my card reader for a night, which obviously prevented me from posting. Then I had purchased a new hard drive for my computer, and Elliot installed that along with some more RAM, which required reinstalling my operating system, which meant that all my programs were gone, including CS5. And Elliot and I have been pretty busy as of late (who am I kidding, we always are), and so last night was the first chance he had to reinstall CS5 for me. So I am finally able to catch up on all of my pictures (which for the first time in a while I am excited about so many days in a row!). Once again, to reduce the number of posts that I have, I will just upload the extra pictures I like right in each day.

Friday, October 8

The title was stuck in my head while I was taking these on Friday, and was still in my head while editing. It is a poem by Maya Angelo, a beautiful one in my opinion. I bought two of these little bird cages at Michael’s in the dollar section a couple of months ago, and have wanted to do this exact shot since I bought them. But, either I didn’t have time, or it was cloudy, or I got out of class when there was not enough day light (if any). So on Friday I decided that even though the sun was slightly higher than I would have liked, I was going to try to get the shot since the sun was out. I had to stand on a step-ladder in my front yard for some (I later moved to my backyard for a better tree/background), and I got lots of strange looks. It was also very, very tough to decide which would be my picture for the day.
