Social Dilemma for #MonochromeMonday

In today's social media networks "when We are captivated by the Media, We can not Escape... We are gripped because “We are the Product".

This falls in the If you know, you know category. If you're from #MariettaGA then you recognize this landmark - the #BigChicken - which has been the basis of directions in Marietta #Georgia for decades now. Turn at the Big Chicken. LOL

Thanks in advance for your shares if you choose whether by boosting or otherwise. This is how I pay the bills so word of mouth is huge!

Digital Art Painting of a restaurant known as The Big Chicken in Marietta, Georgia. It currently houses a KFC. The roof of the restaurant includes a large red chicken. In front of the restaurant are a few vintage cars that were closer to the time that it opened. 

And yes if this were a video you would see that the Chicken's eyes and beak are animated. The pupil of the eyes rotate and the beak opens and closes. If you have never seen it that may explain why it's such a local legend.

Hope dares to blossom
Even inside the abysmal abyss.
Hope secretly feeds and strengthens promise.

Geikie gorge panorama

A more panoramic view of a section of the Geikie gorge. The high-water mark of the river in flood can clearly be seen on the gorge wall in the demarcation between light stone and its native, weathered oranges and dark ochres.

#photography #panorama #landscape #reflections #mirror #art #travel #Geikie #gorge #geology #patterns #nature #rock #ArtMatters #AYearForArt

A shot from water-level across the calm Fitzroy river to the escarpment of the Geikie gorge wall opposite. The frame is divided in half at the waterline, with an almost perfect reflection of the gorge and blue sky above in the river water. The gorge wall is an imposing, almost vertical sheer cliff of weathered sandstone, thirty or forty metres high, and very rugged. The high-water mark of the river in flood can clearly be seen on the gorge wall in the demarcation between light stone and its native, weathered oranges and dark ochres. A small tour boat can be seen near the far bank, dwarfed by the wall, giving a sense of scale.

Geikie gorge wall, detail

The eroded sandstone wall of Geikie gorge on the Fitzroy river, Western Australia. This picture was taken in the dry season, when the scoured, more heavily eroded rock is exposed. The high-water mark on the gorge wall in the following picture shows the huge difference in river height between wet and dry seasons, and the reason the stone is so deeply eroded.
🧵 ...

#photography #art #travel #Geikie #gorge #geology #patterns #nature #rock #ArtMatters #AYearForArt

Water-level closeup of the heavily eroded and scoured sandstone wall of Geikie gorge. The dark green water of the Fitzroy river runs under a heavily undercut outcrop of pale, almost white sandstone, its original orange almost completely washed away. Slightly higher up the wall there are numerous rounded hollows and further outcroppings and strong horizontal cuts, showing both faults in the rock and witness marks of heavier erosion. The wall as a whole is monumental, but there are very few sharp edges, nearly every surface has been smoothed by the rush of water.

Rowboats, lined up and waiting for people to enjoy the lovely Irish afternoon in the nearby lake or lough.

I don't mean to rush the seasons but spring reminds me of the lazy warm sunny days ahead.

The laurel wreath has long symbolized honor & victory. The bee, wealth, good luck, prosperity & power. Both are featured in this painting with a background that resembles honeycomb illuminated from behind.

Full of life and movement, this golden hued painting of a honey bee inside a laurel wreath will bring warmth to any wall in your home. The laurel wreath has long symbolized honor and victory and the bee wealth, good luck, prosperity and power. Perhaps it was for these reasons that Napoleon chose the two symbols to represent his empire. Image also available on items of home decor.

Welcome to Spring and warmer weather at long last! I need to get to the state park just north of me and see if I can find an Iris growing in the wild like this one I found there in a previous Spring.

Sometimes boys feed babies.

Among mammals, the female tends to be more involved in childcare since the young gestate inside the her body where the male cannot access them. That said, not all male mammals fail to parent actively. Male Dayak fruit bats can produce milk to feed their young from their nipples.

Inspired by memories of an old cemetery I visited on #Inishmore - and it still doesn't seem possible that's been over ten years ago. But obviously it remains prominent in my memories. ☘️

Digital art painting of a Celtric Cross standing in a grassy knoll surrounded by the rubble of a centuries old cemetery. Inspired by my visit to the island of Inishmore on Ireland's west coast near the city of Galway. The foreground is mostly shadowy grass. Behind the Celtic Cross is a starry night sky with mostly blue color but a bit of pink on the horizon.

Charcoal clouds drift across the bottom of the frame against a dawning sky, almost black against the delicate purple-grey gradient of growing light behind them. Most of the frame is just a wash of colour, lightest at the bottom left, where the sun will rise, and darkest at the top right. Almost invisible, two-thirds of the way up the sky, floating above the clouds is the tiny crescent moon, just a tiny silver sliver in the sky.

In some areas you can find high sand dunes and depending on the time of day, the sand shines in golden colors or turned deep red.

#photography #birds #BirdsOfMastodon #nature #wildlife #eagle #raptors #Ngurrungurrudjba #ArtMatters

A white-bellied sea eagle is perched atop a dead tree, facing the sun, its wings open but not fully raised, for drying. The bird’s head is turned in profile, and it looks more like a heraldic crest than a live animal. Its head, chest and forewings are white, as advertised, while the outer wings and tail are a dark, dusky grey. Behind the eagle is bright blue sky, while immediately behind and below are the green tips of live trees. It’s an imposing sight

Many beautiful puffy clouds as seen while flying above them. There are dark shadows around the clouds as reflections from the nearby sun (out of the picture). If you look really close you can even see ocean water through those clouds. The middle part of the image is sharp, the top and bottom is blurry to immitate a miniature effect.
