Mundane Monday challenge is created to find beauty in almost everything.
The challenge is simple. Find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.
When I see a Raven, I think of Edgar Allan Poe and his horror stories.
The raven is the largest bird of the crow family. This family is called Corvidae and the old word for a raven Corbie. In mythology, the raven is often connected with death, which is why Poe chose it for his poem.

There is something a bit moody about the lone bird here. Great atmospheric pic.
Beauty in the mundane
Can be found in many ways
The imagination contains
Sights, sounds, images, words that say
Descriptions of the divine, the artistic, the creative
Bathing each mind’s image in colors, textures, meaning
If you but close your eyes, you will see all the relative
Pictures of your heart, psyche, soul seeming…
Lost, hidden, forgotten, but au contraire?
The scene bubbles up to the surface
If you but search within … if you but dare
To see beyond the darkness and reverse
The memories of the mundane
That have captured your heart in refrains
Of luscious strains of music or spoken muses
Yes, I see; I’ve seen; The beauty of the ruse.

I love this photo. Peaceful, in a way.
i like how the Raven and bars are stark black with the cityscape in muted grey. Nice reflective capture.
Beautiful black and white image. Nice contrast of light and darkness.
