Artist's Description

This is “the shot of the day that got away” and I couldn’t be happier. The bird was in complete sunlight when I saw it and I approached too quickly so it moved to the side, preparing to take wing. I stopped, it stopped, and this is what I saw: a feathered thespian looking away from stage right, awaiting his cue to step back into the spotlight and deliver his lines. The location was a nasty bus station garage and as you can see, it’s falling apart from the ceiling down. There are broken windows that have never been replaced, bums panhandling, wives beaten and finally running away from abusers, ex-criminals getting out of town to start… whatever elsewhere, and general filth. The bird poop doesn’t make the place any more attractive but this one bird on this one lonely rafter made my day and the best shot out of over 600 in my 6-hour walk around Sacramento.

By the way, my computer crashed just before finishing the B&W version which I think I’ll use to replace this upload. I think it will be a more forlorn image.
