Paper Crane Project

Carrie Workman Blue Crane


My Paper Crane Project crane arrived awhile ago, but I finally took a photo this afternoon. I'd been meaning to come up with a super cool, artistic set-up, or to trick one of the dogs into posing with the crane. After realizing that my dogs are not well trained enough to pose, and that my point-and-shoot camera doesn't exactly make me Georgia O'Keefe, the photo above is what I came up with. I like the variety of fabric patterns with the pattern on the crane. I like the blues & greens with the color of the crane. That's basically it. There is a Flickr group with a lot of crane photos, it's both intimidating and inspiring.

Making & distributing 1,000 paper cranes is a really interesting idea, both because of the cultural signifigance of the origami crane and from a process perspective. It's no small feat to fold the cranes, let alone organize & send them out, and I applaud Liz's efforts! I'm very happy to be one of the 1,000 recipients.
