Aspiration 08 14 2010

A crow flew by

It knew what I saw

It wanted to abandon its dreadful cackling caw

The crow told me it wanted to fly like a gull

As I drove in my four wheeled metal framed hull

And try and be

What I like to see

It beat its wings in long rhythmic strokes

But quickly had to revert to its faster wing like pokes

It knew I did not bring my camera

And therefore it would first time test its wings of Gamera

About Me

My photo
Welcome to my Blogs. My name is Thomas Murphy and I love the forest and wildlife areas of Wisconsin and would like to share my thoughts and the pictures I have taken of the natural areas of Wisconsin. Come share in my collection of what I feel to some of the finest scenes and images of the forests, lakes, rivers and marshes that Wisconsin has to offer. I like to go to pristine and secluded areas where nature resides quietly and I feel the resulting “lost” images are profoundly unique. I am usually “in the moment” when I take these pictures. When I say in the moment I mean a sense of excitement often precedes what my eye captures through the camera. I never stage these shots but seem to be in the right place and time when I shoot them. And when I transfer them from my camera and view them on my computer screen I realize a sense of surrealism that resonates with me yet again to the time they were taken and exemplify the beauty of nature. Please peruse my sites and experience the beauty of being there as I did.
