fallen

I’m still photographing any feathers I see fallen on the ground. This one is from a Galah (a type of parrot). So why feathers? What’s that supposed to mean. The word ‘fallen’ says it all really. In a way feathers can have a related symbolism to bones, though perhaps not so immediately implying death. There is certainly a melancholy to a fallen feather though. The possibility of autonomous flight has fascinated people for ages – and such a powerful ability relies on these delicate fragile objects that occasionally fall to the ground, where they sit displaying their delicate beauty – until the next rain.
