Saw this big black crow sitting on a grave stone in the somewhat spooky St. Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah and immediately recalled Edgar Alan Poe's poem, "The Raven"... Of course, I was reminded that a raven is much larger than a crow,...but I protested, "But it is a bird and it is black." But paying my entreaty no heed, this ebony visitor simply turned and said one word, "Nevermore"...

right on, richard---that would be the payoff: All these people are named "crow". And lol Rod: All the other crows are placing bets that this dude won't get another pic taken---and you come along ("another sucker!" they're crying...) (and it would be even better if, after you left, the bird ripped off his 'cover', and he was really a cardinal...) You got a softness here that is spooky and mystical, and somehow feels very much like the "mythic south". It has a beautiful dreamy feel. And the light is beautiful too, with those diagonal shadows from the trees. And it's great to read the stones---love that you included those front stones, so we can see some of the dates (for the Herman couple). A lush almost cottony capture; has real mood. (And I love reading tara in your gallery---I guess she hated this shot, lol: She's not here...but she always has an intimate perspective, and comments on how you got the whole thing whereas she got a balustrade and a cat...so what happened here: she's boycotting this shot?) Very atmospheric, moody work, Bill.
