A Bird in the Hand

A Bird in the Hand

This is my take on the old saying “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.”  Which, to me, means it is better to see and appreciate what you have rather than think about and worry about what you do not.

Details of lines and shapes on an exterior wall of a modular building at the Maryland Avenue Montessori School on the East Side of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.   It was overcast today which made for very soft and even illumination.  On a walk with the family to the grocery store, we stopped to let my son play on the playground at the school.  While he was playing, I took a quick look around.

Abandoned School and Comfy Chair

Abandoned School House and a Comfy Chair

I originally shot this old school house interior and broken chair back in March of 2012.   My wife and I were taking the backroads in northern Illinois somewhere near Rockford when we passed this old building.  Of course, I immediately hit the brakes and turned around and started shooting.
