A Parakeet Alights

Back home in chilly England, I’ve been going through my photos.  All 485 of them. I rather want to go back to the days when you had a Kodak Box Brownie, and one, maybe two films of twelve or sixteen shots to get you through the holiday: and when you had to wait more than a week for the chemist (the chemist!) to develop them. I’ve spent all day chucking photos out, re-living special moments , and wondering which snaps may get an airing on this blog.

But this shot asked for its moment in the limelight.  We were at a height, up at the top of the tower of Cádiz  Cathedral.  A parakeet was wheeling in the bright sky.  And it spotted Jesus.  Well, I think it’s Jesus. And it chose to alight.  I think he deserves a spot in January Light.

  1. Lovely photo. I like the puzzled look on both faces. But the photo puzzles me too. Apparently Spain in the process of culling large numbers of an invasive parakeet species: the monk parakeet. This is not one of them. Would you know which parakeet it is?

  2. All round great shot. Striking composition with both texture and colour contrasts. How about this for a reading – ebullient, green life inspects cool, lifeless marble; verdict, nothing to see here.

    1. Isn’t it warm(ish) where you are then? We’re not really having a proper winter, but the weather’s not good either. Mud everywhere. I feel sorry for dog walkers here!
