Baby Bear Bird.

Posted in Interesting People, Random Image by marktucker on January 17, 2011

Shot this yesterday for my friend Diana. We had a wonderful child to work with. Brent was with his mother, in a Cracker Barrel somewhere, and somehow, somebody knew somebody, and he met this child and her grandmother, I think. Not sure about the specifics of the story, but on some level, it doesn’t matter, (but doesn’t Cracker Barrel have to be involved in every story that happens in The South? Really). She is so poised and well-spoken, all for three years old. And these incredible birds were flying all over my house; at some point, they’d get bored from sitting in her hand, and they’d fly off, and Brent and I would climb a ladder and get them down off the seamless or the window sill. They are tiny little doves from Petsmart, and I want a couple for myself, along with a victorian bird cage. They make a soothing little cooing noise.

(Edit): Here’s a second image too; just playing around with the window light.

    Wow. The closeness in tones of the background, the child’s clothing and the bird’s feathers – simply a beautiful image.

    Just lovely, especially the soft grays in the first one, really beautiful.

    Absolutely magical. The window light portrait is exquisite — I love the grainy quality, the light, her expression — it’s so beautiful…..
