[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Shortly after the theme "REPETION" ended I saw this baby bird in my yard looking for a spot to hide from me and my camera!
But time has been so limited for me, lately, that I only had the opportunity to prepare the photo today and I would like to add it to the theme even though it's way behind us!

Waste away
I'm crawling blind
Hollowed by what I left inside
For you, just you
I'm caught in place
But I ignore what I can't erase

I will run and hide till memories fade away
And I will leave behind a love so strong

Close my eyes theses voices say
Haunting me, I can't escape
For you, just you
Time will always wait
While I throw away what I can't replace

I will run and hide till memories fade away
And I will leave behind a love so strong [x2]

I will run and hide!
And I will leave behind!

I will run and hide till memories fade away
And I will leave behind a love so strong!

>Copied the bird from each of the five photos (out of six) of the same bird onto the first.
>Revived colours
>Corrected missing parts of the bird and fence, here and there, derived from the different angles and distances of each photo as, each shot I took, I got a little closer to the bird until it finally decided to hide under an old car in my yard.
>I posted the six original photos in the WS

Thank you for visiting and a nice week to all.

Exquisite PP work Lurdes! You did the complex copy-paste amazingly well.
The presentation is nice too.

Olá Lurdes
Belíssimo trabalho e apresentação.
Obrigado pela nota e pelo poema.
Uma boa semana
Os melhores cumprimentos

Hi Lurdes,
Very attractive. The birds llok like they are perched an open cage, and that gives me a sense of freedom. There is good shrapness, and the repetition is indeed a good title. Best regards, Danilo

Excellent PP work to combine this bird in to the same image.
Well done

Hi Lurdes, splendid composition with wonderful PP work, lovely bird with great sharpness, elegant presentation, very well done, ciao Silvio

Olá Lurdes
Tantos? pelo bico (cor e tamanho) são jovens e acabadinhos de sair do ninho... uma família.
Gostei do momento e edição.
Bom registo

Hello Lurdes!
What a darling little creature; sure hope Tiger hasn't devoured it! I was visited by a beautiful white dove yesterday...I should have photographed it too!!
Nice presentation,
Thanks for sharing.

I love the rustic nature of this shot, the colours and age of the setting is a great contrast to the vitality of the L.B.B. (little brown bird) The copying work is very believable. well done.
