B&W - Steadfast

While I was not getting my bird shot, most of my time was thinking what in the world I was going to do for this theme.

stead·fast, adjective: resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering.

I kept thinking of trees, but trees get torn down all the time; especially in my town where they are always building a new apartment complex. Just last month, an entire orchard disappeared from our neighborhood. So....no trees.


I finally settled on a statue. Statues seem to stand the test of time. They remain in their diligent position regardless of weather or spectators. The specific statue I had in mind seems more steadfast than most. What makes one statue more steadfast than another, you ask?

Well, this statue doesn't have a home. I feel bad for him. Two of them actually. A stag and a moose, sit near the freeway, strapped to a trailer. And there they wait. They are beautiful and there must be some design in mind for their eventual habitation. But until then, I feel like they wait patiently for their moment. Always steadfast.

The moose is so majestic looking, but I've been told they are one of the most dangerous creatures in the wild. A lot of people have been killed by them. Just don't go too near the statue in case it topples over on you!
