The photograph itself doesn't interest me. I want only to capture a minute part of reality.

Woodbine, Memorial Day 2012
Went to Woodbine here in Ellsworth on Memorial Day to place flowers on my dad's grave. When Dotty and I left I took a side avenue to look about the cemetery. Decades ago while in High School I worked on the grounds crew at Woodbine during summers and I have always since held these final resting places close to my heart. While slowly driving along Dotty said “stop” real quick. “Look there” she said pointing to the south and there on top a monument sat a male cardinal. Trying out my new camera with its image stabilizing feature I came up with this shot…I like the feature!
