Feathered.... The First Four Weeks

Feathered, is a project Lili Love and I have decided to work on together. It is a weekly post of a feather image apiece, created by two friends living 3,370 miles (and a large, North Atlantic Ocean, pond apart)  

We first connected years ago when we became Secret Santa partners in a little exchange arranged by wonderful photographers who had all taken the same workshops.  I really feel it was destiny for us to have been paired up.  From our wild children and love of nature we have a lot of similar images...  but it has come to our attention that really, we have much more in common than a love of nature, and magical creatures...  

When we were both feeling a lack of creative energy for many reasons, we came up with the idea of trying to live one feather at a time.  Through this project we are simply going to take an image with a feather in it every week.  It is as simple as that, but so much more, how can we create interesting and creative images with a feather 52 times?  What will come of this?  We don't know, but honestly, one feather at a time, we will make it through, it will be simple, free, but also, I hope profound and trans formative.   

The images are to be seen as one image, and are shown as so on the Facebook page for Feathered.  But once a month I will post them here, side by side, but on their own, so we can all see them at their full size.  Here I give you the first four weeks of Feathered.  Lili's photos are first, followed by mine.  We hope you enjoy them!
