Cross-Country Connections is a new biodork weekly blog entry. Contributors are me, my sister and my Mom. Every week we choose a theme and we all take a picture of something in our area that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Bird(s).
From Brianne in Minneapolis, Minnesota
On Sunday I ran across a large group of seagulls hanging out in the parking lot of the Eden Prairie Mall. This was the morning after we received 8 inches of snow and the sky was still heavy and overcast.
From Mom in Carbondale, Ilinois
In honor of Veterans Day I submit the following. The Carbondale National Guard Armory is an excellent example of Art Deco work done by WPA artists. Built in 1937 concrete eagles standing 6 feet high guard the entrance into the fortress like building.
From Erin in Bellingham, Washington
This is an original artwork by Kevin Veara, a wedding gift from him and the only real art my husband and I own. From Kevin’s website, “His array of avian life, native and migratory, are often pictured as encircled by menacingly sharp-leaved plants that remind us of human complicity in climate change, habitat fragmentation, invasive species, and genetic modification.”
