Orange Chicken

I saw this brightly colored chicken at the Hopewell Furnace State Park in Pennsylvania. I like the brigthness of the feathers and how you can make out the individual 'hairs' of each feather along the chicken's neck. Amazing how such a simple animal can be so colorful and complex.

Hmmm good photo of my next meal, I wish there was more eye contact. And if I remember right I said it first that it's "Amazing how such a simple animal can be so colorful and complex." Of course I was describing that time you wore that pink shirt while trolling the local docks for sailors and reading Tolstoy.

Brocco-I prefer sesame beef but I guess orange chicken is good too.

Ian-Sounds like you are a little too into making eye contact with chickens.

Wow, this is awesome! I love the framing and the overwhelming orange hues and how they fade around all the edges. the position of the chicken's head and the feather arrangement give a feeling of spiralling. Very cool, Ahamed!
