A Frame of Freedom

Blogadda is conducting a photography contest with the theme, Freedom. Here’s my entry;

A frame of Freedom

Well, I know using a bird to denote freedom is so cliche, (seriously, how many lone bird(s) and eagle(s) soaring high do we need to visualize freedom?) but freedom is not about being alone or flying alone. This image depicts my visual cue of freedom, being among peers – yet having one’s own ideas and views – sharing a common space with understanding and acceptance (of your neighbor’s freedom). Flight is freedom, its more enjoyable when you can fly at your pace, style and most of all with your peers.

For Photo Geeks:

Shot with a Nikon D40 / (Nikon 70-300 VR) 180mm /f5.3/ ISO 800 – 1/125th shutter. processed in Adobe Lightroom.
