I celebrate birds whenever I can and I feel that I have a connection with God through these graceful subjects. I was taking photos of this temple during a passing storm in San Diego and a single bird flew through the frame, which caused me to think how wonderful this shot would look if it were filled with possibly 5 or 10 birds. As I was studying this scene, the light and clouds were shaping it into such a stunning photo possibility, when lo and behold, these crows appeared, as if out of nowhere, and they just kept coming and coming. Talk about reason to celebrate! Yes, I did say thank you out loud, as my soul was touched once again by a higher source due to a photographic experience. To me this was the calm after the storm showing me once again what’s right with the world.
