Surrendering to Gravity by DpressedSoul Surrendering to Gravity by DpressedSoul
Lost again, broken and weary
Unable to find my way
Tail in hand
Dizzy and clearly unable to just let this go
I am surrendering to gravity and the unknown
Catch me, heal me, lift me back up to the sun
I choose to live

(A Perfect Circle, Gravity)

I like this song so much. a scream from a drugged mind lost in the fog of thoughts... your photo shows it very well. but it shows also serenity and calmness. just like after another dose. this photo has it all :musical:

Ich hab das Gefühl, dass ich solche Züge "früher" öfter gesehen habe als heute, aber das kann auch Illusion sein (und Berlin ist vllt nicht der beste Ort für Vogelschwarmbeobachtung) - auf jeden Fall könnte ich ihnen unendlich zugucken, schönes Bild :)

Mmh, vielleicht liegt's wirklich an Berlin. Als Zugvogel würde ich Großstädte auch meiden. ;) An jenem Tag habe ich etwa zehn solcher Schwärme innerhalb einer Stunde über mich hinwegziehen sehen - eindrucksvoll und immer auch mit ein bisschen Schwermut verbunden.

Freut mich, dass es Dir gefällt. Vielen Dank! :)

These birds are cranes. They always fly in a "V" pattern and sometimes you can see about 100 of them in a single "V", it's really impressive.

Thank you very much, Nick. I found it interesting how the birds on the left look like leaves flying away from the tree.

She needs a break, but I don't give up hope that she will eventually return to dA.

Fantastic work, dear Florian! :heart: I love images like this one: with tree branches and birds. They're always a bit sad and melancholic, yet so beautiful and poetic... But I've never seen such wonderfully extraordinaire bird pattern as in your photo.

These birds are cranes and they use to fly in a "V" pattern (usually much more organized than in my photo, here's a good example: [link]). I'm very glad that you like it, sadness and melancholia is what I feel nowadays, so I guess this picture just expresses my current mood.
Thank you very much, dear! :iconblackheartplz:

Thank you so much, and what an interesting reference: Maybe Fromm had commented on this picture that all these birds are denying their individuality for reaching a common goal. ;)

Are you into psychology?
