Making Paper Cranes #photography

I’m making paper cranes as a tribute to Japan. They are a symbol of hope associated with a Japanese legend that says anyone who makes 1000 paper cranes will be granted a wish.

This is my first crane that I made yesterday after any number of fail attempts. It’s somewhat pitiful, but it is done.

One Crane for Hope

Here is today’s effort, equally pitiful and equally done.

Crane for Hope #2

Will I make it to 1000? It seems highly doubtful that my attention span is that long. I am going to keep trying to perfect the folding technique, though, and I am going to keep thinking of and praying for the Japanese people as I do.
