    Ooooo-what a beauty and so evocative in the shadowed light!

    • Mo Crow says:

      Thanks for the good words Michelle, it’s just on dawn with the Full Moon setting on this very still misty glowing golden morning and have fallen in love all over again with this big city with reading Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino, such a beautiful book.

  2. Carol says:

    Beautiful feather, Mo, do you know which bird? Your description of morning is lovely. Now I want to read Invisible Cities.

    • Mo Crow says:

      I don’t know what bird it is but a friend thinks it may be a Plymouth Rock chook will ask when she gets back from a cruise of New Zealand & Italo Calvino is a favourite! here is a link to a little film of one his short stories in Cosmicomics called The Distance of the Moon

    i’ve been seeing feathers all over the place lately (jewelry, clothing…) and it makes me think of you. this one is a beauty.

    • Mo Crow says:

      I want to try to make some black & white lace based on this feather and do some variations ie white on black and black on white and then have a go with a stencil knife using different weights of black & white paper, there’s a little book in the offing with B&W hand stitched headbands… perhaps black leather with bone or tagua inlay….

    Hello Mo, loved the little animation film, will have to check out Invisible Cities.

    Mmmm, would love to come up to the big smoke, to visit and go to the lace show with you. Sorry to say it won’t be possible though. ox
