Distant Red Bird (130/365)

“I am too far away from what I love and my distance is without remedy.”
Albert Camus (1913-1960), French-Algerian novelist, dramatist, philosopher. Gallimard (1958). Martha in The Misunderstanding, act 2, sc. 2, Pléiade (1962).

TIME:  10:33 AM
PLACE:  Our Lady of the Snows Shrine
SUBJECT:  Northern Cardinal

A cardinal flew in front of my car while I was returning to work after attending a visitation for my cousin’s father-in-law this morning.  I tried taking some photos, but he was quite a distance away and I wasn’t getting close enough in my opinion.  By the time I changed lenses, he had flown away.  Nothing else inspired me today, so this is as good as it gets on this chilly Monday.
