"Landing" is the thirteenth photograph from "Birds" set.
Description of "Birds" set:
Waking up while singing birds is one of the most relaxing, moving, and divine
things that a person can experience.
It is no accident that the small sculpture of a bird found in a cave in Germany
turned out to be one of the oldest works of art ever seen. This sculpture is only
five centimeters long. Thanks to it, we realize that 30,000 years ago, its creator
was able to move from one world to another, i.e., from the external world of the
senses to the inner world of the imagination.
Birds are a symbol of the unearthly laws of nature. In many cultures, through the entire history of humanity, birds symbolically connected the sky with Earth. They were seen as a symbol of the soul or a celestial messenger who contacts Gods. Birds live on all continents. It means that we can meet them even in the most remote corners of our planet. What interestingly, the birds belong to the most intelligent animals. Crow, for example, can use its claws and beak as primitive tools. When prisoners return to society after serving their sentences, they feel as free as a bird. In our imagination, we often leave our ordinary, mundane world, and we become a free spirit like a bird. Mentioned at the beginning birds' singing in the morning is calling us to live.
Birds accompany me practically at every stage of my photographic adventure. Not all people, however, respect, love, or admire them. For example, pigeons, which are a characteristic feature of the urban landscape, are often considered to be dangerous and oppressive creatures. People try to poison them or even shoot them because they view them as "flying rats." For me, a resident of Warsaw, birds (like trees) are a peculiar representation of
nature in the urban landscape of the jungle. Thanks to them, we can remind
ourselves that there are many amazing creatures outside the city walls that are
waiting to be discovered.
