Inspire by Mandy Crandell

November 23, 2009

I adore this photograph taken by ballerina and photographer Mandy Crandell in Indiana. I imagine it must have taken her a great deal of time and patience to get those birds to follow her instructions. But the result is fantastic.

    this is the time of year where huge swarms of birds swoosh down into our neighborhood, covering the lawns in a huge community of feathered friends…they inspired several of my paintings/drawings. I love watching them as they move together!
