Hugh and I watched two herons dance around the idea of landing on this roof, skirting the aerial chaos of gulls along Alki Beach. One finally planted its feet on the A-frame, while the other lurked in a tree above. Looking at the pic, Hugh started singing the lyric from Elton John’s Your Song … “I sat on the roof … and kicked off the moss … ” It occurred to me that the heron would have a slightly different take. Hence the title of this shot.
“I sat on the roof … and kicked off the moss … well a few of the seagulls … well, they’ve got me quite cross.”
And Ewan McGregor’s cover from Moulin Rouge:
Very nice. The heron looks comfortably at home on the roof. I don’t know though, I was singing a Rush song in my head…
I’m racking my brain over the Rush song. Help.
