Generally, I enjoy photographing landscapes since they memorialize the blend of lovely shapes and vibrant color which compose Bend, Oregon's character. On this cool breezy day, to commemorate Ruby Tuesday, I chose instead to capture the flying red swan mobile which graces the round-about near my home. You might think this myopic long-necked bird knows only one way, South toward warmer weather in Galveston or at least out of town to new ponds and glens. However, like most water birds, this one spins periodically in circles and go nowhere in particular. Tomorrow, the red swan will be again amidst traffic projecting his urge toward new hopes and goals and vistas. Perhaps he will inspire us to visit your city, you never know.
