As you know, the subjects were predetermined for us by other bloggers back in March. Originally week fourteen (that's this week) was supposed to be Courage, a subject suggested by the lovely Dionne. Both Laura and myself have put our thinking caps on to try and come up with the best photo idea. By Sunday morning neither one of us have shot her image yet. Laura has been out of town all week, visiting family and busy working. I was pretty busy myself and then after Saturday night's scare I just couldn't focus on such a tough subject as Courage. Laura and I talked it over (more like texted it over the internet...) and agreed we needed to have a change in subjects. We have a few extra subjects at the bottom of the list, and so we picked a subject we both could manage to shoot by Monday evening. Birds.
For some reason the first idea that came to mind was Origami birds. As always, I wanted to shoot something that wasn't the obvious thing you'd expect, and I am sure paper birds fit that thought :)
My friend Timna helped me out and got me some colored parchment paper, my someone cut them into square shapes, and then both him & myself folded them into Pelicans & Cranes using some online instructions
We had fun shooting them all, and we got some pretty good options (as well as some images of goofiness...)

and some goofing around
