Happy Easter

I have been battling with two needs these last few days – the need to start a couple of new projects and the need to do nothing. The doing nothing won. Big time. On one hand wasting two days is two days wasted, but on the other hand it’s also two days rested (which is a good thing considering I’m spending most of the week with family).

However, I finished one creatively related task today: taking pictures of the last two chicks.

It’s a mother/child duo which makes me smile

They are called “Where did he go?”

and “Don’t worry, he’ll grow into it”.

I tried shooting them outside, and the wind made them move like an animated little moving picture. Can you see mama chasing her baby chick?

You can see the Norwegian motif backing showing through against the sun.

These two belong together.

Anyway; our Easter holidays starts on Thursday and ends on Monday so I’ll be taking the rest of the week off. We’ll be doing lots of this

and enjoying glorious chicks of many shapes and sizes.

Happy Easter everyone; see you next week!
