Great pic…as ever! I can't believe I'm the 109th peep to link up. Bet you're glad you reclaimed this linkie.
John Clayton says
Someone's got *way* too much time on their hands! And a fantastic selection of scrap paper!
Random fact, but when I was at school, we (RE course) ended up in the Guiness Book of Records for making almost 5000 of them in 24 hours x
that's lovely, must have taken ages to make!
Really lovely picture. As always – thanks for the linky.
Fi Star-Stone says
Ooooh I want to have a go at those little lovelies!
Loooooooove! Every time I put a photo up for SS I think to myself, 'That's quite cool!'. Then I see YOUR pic and think 'Actually, mine's shite'. So thanks for making me feeling shite. Again. ;))
Wow, those are lovely!!
Reminds me of someleaaons I used to teach in drama about Hiroshima. all started with the teacher in role as a little girl folding cranes, thr clads had to ask me questions to find out what i was doing and why. Homeowrk was to fold a paper crane. Beautiful pic, lovely cranes!

HerMelness Speaks says
That photo took me straight back to childhood. Your photography for me, Jay, is so often about how it makes me feel and not merely what I'm seeing.

I love origami. Particularly peace cranes. I have a pair that are earrings.
Beautiful – wish I could make something like that!

It really is a clever photo, but its playing with my tired eyes. I love the colours and the simplicity yet diversity of it.
jenny paulin says
love the colours on display x
Rollercoaster Mum says
oooh – liking the pretty birds 🙂
What a fabulous array of colours. I'd never have the patience to make all of those, do you think three would have the same effect? Thanks for the linky as always.
Great photo, as ever
