Weekend is around the corner...


HAPPY WEEKEND - Time to fly!


Joni Mitchell - Song to a seagull Lyrics

Fly silly seabird
No dreams can possess you
No voices can blame you
For sun on your wings
My gentle relations
Have names they must call me
For loving the freedom
Of all flying things
My dreams with the seagulls fly
Out of reach out of cry

I came to the city
And lived like old Crusoe
On an island of noise
In a cobblestone sea
And the beaches were concrete
And the stars paid a light bill
And the blossoms hung false
On their store window trees
My dreams with the seagulls fly
Out of reach out of cry

Out of the city
And down to the seaside
To sun on my shoulders
And wind in my hair
But sandcastles crumble
And hunger is human
And humans are hungry
For worlds they can't share
My dreams with the seagulls fly
Out of reach out of cry

I call to a seagull
Who dives to the waters
And catches his silver-fine
Dinner alone
Crying where are the footprints
That danced on these beaches
And the hands that cast wishes
That sunk like a stone
My dreams with the seagulls fly
Out of reach Out of cry

Hey sue,

I am aspiring photographer myself and and saving up to buy my own camera. Sue if possible could you also post your camera setting with each shot you take, such as focal setting, ISO and shutter speed. It will help other like me learn.

Susanne49 said...

Thanks for the comment, Zd.

My photography is most time spontaneous, intuitive when I'm working in the fields. I don't remember all the dates, sorry.

lovely photo Sue I hope the gulls didn't attack you as some can be pretty darn cheeky and fly very close.

They came close....uhhh, right? :-)
